This week will see some reviews of the show hit around the place. Plus some cd reviews as well. It is always such a nervous time because you hope people understand how you communicate your emotions across. If this review is anything to go by then I think I am being understood. Thank you so much, very “wow”.
Faster Louder Review
. . . . Hunz are, quite simply, amazing. Not only did this band create a sublime album in the space of a month, but they also have the live show to back it up. From the moment Hans van Vliet sings his first note, the audience are completely enchanted. Tonight the band launches their new album, Thoughts That Move, which rivals Gotye’s Like Drawing Blood in my books. (A big claim, I know. You can download it for free from the band’s website and decide for yourself.) Vliet’s laptop combines with careful bass and drums to produce an ambient sonic landscape, over which his luscious vocals soar.
While the band plays a mix of songs from the old and new albums, it is new songs like Soon Soon, with its repetitive drum beat and You Said Hello with its catchy melody that really stand out. From the previous album, the groovy Beg is clearly a favourite, as is the heartbreakingly delicate Draw the Line. The band finishes with the haunting Switch Off, leaving the audience spellbound. I don’t think there is a single person in the room who isn’t in awe of Hunz by the end of the set and I feel privileged to have been one of the first to see these beautiful songs performed live.
