THE HUNNA - 'I Get High To Forget'
The Hunna began to take shape when Ryan (Vocals/Guitar), Dan (Lead Guitar) and Junate (Bass) met in college. After a couple of line-up changes, Jack arrived on drums and everything fell into place. A sucker for a good chorus, the boys like to work from the outside in when it comes to writing.
“There are so many different processes to what we do, but often we’ll start with a chorus, and then we’ll funnel in from there,” the band have noted about their writing and recording process. The four guys have amassed a massive fanbase since their debut album "100," which debuted at #12 in the UK album chart and #3 in the Indie charts.
The band is set to be the first band on your playlist, the one you listen to when you’re driving around with the top down. Bleeding of wistful nostalgia and teamed with an unremitting lust for life that is as infectious as it is relentless, The Hunna’s unabashed sound is the soundtrack to your Summer. They are currently gearing up for a cross-country tour with Barns Courtney.
PARIS SHADOWS - 'Let Me Go'
Born to a Mexican father and American mother and as if predisposing a love for art within her son, mom named Paris after The Cure’s 1992 live album, Paris. Paris never quite fit in at school, opting to wear girls’ jeans “because they were tighter” and convincing mom to “shave the middle of [his] head and spike the hair into two Mohawks like [the late] Keith Flint of The Prodigy” in third grade.
Around the same time, he picked up cello and fell in love with the instrument in between immersing himself in punk and industrial music. He split his college years between painting and trying his hand at fashion design before joining a hotshot crew to fight wild land fires in 2016. Along the way, he quietly started producing under the name Prodbyparis for friends such as Machai. 2017 saw him pick up the microphone on a whim, cutting a demo for “Po’ed Up” and posting it on Soundcloud. A$AP Mob affiliate Tyler Gro$$o passed it on to Post Malone who invited Paris on tour.
Pronoun - 'Run'
LGBTQIA artist who just dropped her debut record, "I'll show you stronger," which is deeply rooted in heartbreak, but has an underlying sense of triumph and optimism that sees Alyse Vellturo make sense of heartache and ultimately grow stronger.

AV Club and Uproxx recently included her in their top records of the year so far.
