Nottingham’s band Hunch Power comes back with an epic third single which proves it wasn’t just beginner’s luck when their debut single and video were premiered by BBC Radio Introducing and Vive Le Rock!
“Eye for an Eye” borrows Ghandi’s famous words about passive resistance which inspired Martin Luther King to adopt non-violence during the Civil Rights Movement in the 1950s and 1960s.
The lyrics are smart and thought-provoking, posing a series of ethical dilemmas about War, revenge and public opinion. Hunch Power are building themselves a reputation as a socially-conscious act which likes to tackle big topics. They couldn’t remain indifferent to the invasion of Ukraine and the possibility of another World War.
The music is reminiscent of “American Slang” by The Gaslight Anthem and Frank Turner’s “Get Better”, two generational anthems which define Hunch Power’s identity as part of a solid music community.
“Eye for an Eye” was produced, mixed and mastered by Sam Cook (Ducking Punches, Harker). Jack Gregory from Northern Captives and Hell’s Ditch guested on drums again.
The single will be officially released on Friday 3rd March 2023 on all online streaming platforms. A pre-save will be available on Spotify and the band also plans to treat their Bandcamp followers with an anticipated launch.
The multi-cam live video to accompany the release was filmed during their show supporting PET NEEDS at The Bodega in Nottingham on December 15th 2022.
Catch Hunch Power live at Call of the Wild Festival on Friday 26th May 2023 in Lincoln, UK. More shows to be announced soon.
