2016 has been a good year for Hertfordshire boys, The Hunna, with game-changing singles such as ‘You & Me‘ and ‘We Could Be‘ being dropped and a much-anticipated album, ‘100‘ coming soon (Out 26 August 2016). Considering the band only formed last year, their music has developed impressively fast, and this shows in their growing international fan-base.
This track opens with a heavy guitar riff that paves the way for front man Ryan Potter to wear his heart on his sleeve with emotive lyrics: “You say deep down the odds are against us but you feel way to good for me”. ‘Still Got Blood‘ is about the relatable struggles of love, and the sacrifices and compromises involved in all that. It is this voice that gives the track a emotional sense of desperation, which is uplifted into a powerful, confident hit by heavy drums and the energetic distorted guitar sounds reminiscient of Catfish and The Bottlemen that this band are known for.
This is a track that would be the highlight of a live set, with the resounding hook “Still got blood” being exclaimed by the lead vocalist. The track also has a strategic pause of scilence part-way through which is followed by drums and bass drops that would be explosive on-stage.
The music video shows the group doing their own thing and touring around the UK. It even makes time for a few ammusing moments from the band members captured on camera. Check it out below:
