“Slow, sad guitars recall the more touching moments of Mazzy Star, and its difficult not to be drawn in by the yearning lyrics.” NME
“Like a group of stoned teenagers gliding by in the back of trucks speeding across motorways, there’s a gleaming gloss to this early offering. Sleepy and very much content with its slumber, this is one to drift off to.” DIY
London based band HUNCK release their new single ‘I’ll Wait‘ on October 16th, a wonderful mixture of dream-pop vibes, killer vocal melodies and psych guitars. The single was premiered on NME.com and can be listened to here:
HEAR ‘I’LL WAIT’:
HUNCK were born out of the post-riot depths of Tottenham in 2013. Estranged childhood friends Frederik and Thomas reconnected after a series of heartbreaks, losses and unfortunate events to indulge and share their love in the gloomier sounds of long dead crooners such as Al Bowlly and Frank Sinatra.
Initially releasing the dream tinged cover of Frank’s “In The Wee Small Hours of the Morning”, they went on to release their cassette only debut EP ‘Something Missing’. After a period languishing in the hiss of their broken hi-fis and the repetitive thud of darts against a local dart board, Frederik and Thomas recruited Kieron, a space cadet fresh off the plane from LA on drums, Alfred, a cyborg found in Southampton hospital after undergoing treatment to fix a broken neck on bass and Michael whom very little was known about on guitar.
