TOYS is Parisian duo, Paul Prier and Bastien Doremus.

The pair has worked tirelessly for two years, touching up their style to produce an infectious energy of pop packed with synthesizers and bathed in hip-hop and house.

The video for ‘Fire’ has been produced by, and also features ‘Blue Is The Warmest Colour’ star Adèle Exarchopoulos, who stars alongside real life partner, Parisian actor and model Jérémie Laheurte, in a pretend love story.

Interview with The Hunna

The Hunna

The Hunna

Hertfordshire four-piece The Hunna is causing quite a stir in the music world.

We caught up with the guys following their recent tour with Coasts, and discussed hip hop and rock influences, as well as what it was like working with Tim Larcombe (Lana Del Rey, Halsey) and Dan Grech (Wolf Alice, Circa Waves).

How did you meet and why did you start making music together?

We’ve all been close friends and brothers for a while now. Daniel Dorney (Bandana Dan) and Ryan Potter (Valentino) met in music college 6 years ago pursuing the goal of making great music. Jack Metcalfe (Insta King) also went to the same college a few years before. Jermaine Angin (The Prince) has known Bandana Dan since primary school and learnt how to play the guitar together since secondary school. There’s always been a connection between us even though we all met at different times in our lives. After our first rehearsal together 2 years ago we all knew that this was something really special and almost like it was meant to be. Our love and appreciation for music is something that we can’t put into words, the feeling that we have when playing together is the reason why we started and why we will continue making music together!

Where did the name The Hunna come from?

We all have a big hip hop / rap influence so it originated from that. We believe in keeping it 1hunna in everything we do.

Describe your sound in three words.

Turn Up Rock.

You worked with Tim Larcombe and Dan Grech on ‘Bonfire’. What was it like working with them?

It was a privilege to work with Tim Larcombe. He understood our vision and got to know us on a personal level really quickly which helped in the work environment and was a big reason why ‘Bonfire’ sounds like it does. We can safely say that Tim is a 1hunna guy and a true professional at what he does. He’s a true Hunna squad member! We admire Dan Grech’s roster and the work that he has produced. He was a pleasure to work with and brought a unique element to the track

Where do you cite your musical influences from?

Kings Of Leon
Foals
Kanye West
Marvin Gaye
Queen
Michael Jackson

Foals – What Went Down

Foals - What Went Down

Foals – What Went Down

Foals are back, after teaming up with producer James Ford (Arctic Monkeys, Florence + The Machine, Jessie Ware, Mumford & Sons) to release their fourth album, ‘What Went Down’.

The Oxford five-piece retreated to the South of France to record in a rural 19th-century mill. The result is a primal, intense, sometimes harrowing album of extremes.

Lyrically, Philippakis deals with themes around cultural identity, generational anxiety, cynicism, pessimism and heartbreak; “I wanted to tap into my inner madman and feel like I was channeling some sort of fevered creature”.

Watch the video for the lead single below:

The album will be released on 28 August.

Sounds like: The Black Keys, Muse, The Maccabees, The Griswolds, Coasts
