Over the course of the pandemic, the four members of HUNNY collectively made nearly 100 demos that turned into the cohesive compilation of Homesick. “We’ll bring in demos that have established lyrics or themes already, or we’ll write to a melody that happens in the moment,” the band explained of their ever-changing songwriting process. “It’s become increasingly collaborative as the band has gone on.”
Hitting the studio once more with YES. YES. YES. YES producer Carlos De La Garza (Paramore, The Linda Lindas) the band sought out to explore new sounds after briefly straying from their punk beginnings in favor of 80’s new wave and 90’s pop influences. “We’re trying to get to the root of the music we want to make at this point,” the band concluded. The new project finds the band attempting to reconcile those differences with swirling guitar riffs, catchy pop melodies and sugary sweet synths.
