Comprised of long-time friends, Jason Yarger, Jake Goldstein, Jacob Munk, Gregory Horne, Kevin Grimmett, and Joey Anderson, the Los Angeles, CA-based sextet Hunny’s sound draws from 1980s post-punk and an undying love of Prince. Within a year of their formation, the band’s first single “Cry for Me” has blown up across a number of media outlets – the track received 400,000 plays in its first three months on Soundcloud, charted on Hype Machine’s Most Popular Tracks chart, was praised by Pigeons & Planes, Buzzbands.la, Indie Shuffle, The Music Ninja and Hilly Dilly. The single also received regular airplay on KROQ, where it hit number 1 on Kat Corbett’s Local’s Only Show

And once you hear the song, you’ll understand why the band has been building buzz both locally and nationally – the song is shimmering, dance floor-orientated song comprised of a sinuous bass line, shimmering and angular stabs of guitar and four-on-the-floor drumming paired with a plaintively vocals. Although extremely contemporary and slickly produced, the song also sounds as though it could have been released in 1983.
