Live Review: The Hunna - O2 Brixton Academy, London 12/01/2018
The Hunna, supported by Coasts and Night Riots, took centre stage last Friday night, for the first of their two sold out nights at London's O2 Brixton Academy.
With Night Riots opening the evening and many people not knowing their music, they managed to captivate their audience and create a positive atmosphere with the lead singer hushing the band and getting the crowd to sing along.
As Coasts took to the stage, there was already great vibes in the crowd. The catchy songs with their bass-filled choruses brought the crowd together for a dance and sing along. The lead singer came close to the front of the stage, making eye contact with the fans who lined the front barrier.
With the crowd already warmed up by the energetic support acts, The Hunna gave a classic rock and roll performance with drops to the knees, power stances and clapping along with the crowd. Inciting mosh pits, and the audience seemed to be loving the sound and the energy the band had from start to finish. Ending their set with 'Bonfire', the opening track of their first album, the chorus of that song is exactly what this moment is.
"And we blew up like a bonfire, fire, fire"
That is exactly what this band of done, The Hunna has officially blown up into something massive, with two sold out nights at Brixton Academy, it does raise the question. So what next now lads?
