Such a wonderful thing to be on this sampler. A big THANK YOU AMRAP for considering my track and including me on the sampler very VERY Happy.


Amrap has announced the 12 winners for the Amrap ‘Fresh From Queensland’ sampler. With over 75 artists submitting tracks for consideration the sampler showcases the best and brightest of the Queensland music scene. The Sampler will be distributed nationally in November to over 300 community stations and to delegates at the Community Broadcasting Association of Australia’s (CBAA) National Conference.


The sampler showcases a range of genres and up and coming Queensland artists including Drawn From Bees, Little Scout, Ball Park Music, Blame Ringo and Hunz.


Select artists from the sampler are performing an exclusive showcase for community radio broadcasters, music directors and QLD media at the Amrap Fresh From Queensland showcase.

TripleJ Unearthed Reviews


Like others have mentioned before, definitely reminiscent of Radiohead. But hunz without a doubt have their own personal sound. The song is great melodic electronica. Definitely one of my favourite new artists!



Funky moody electro pop with a chip-tune twist, Hunz dazzles with sublime sweetness in such a sweep leaving you breathless on the dancefloor and wanting more. And just in case you think this pop is too disposable, check out the emotion in that dark bassline, the cyclonic computerized melodies, and the introspective lyrics. The barrier has been shaken, and Hunz grooves us out with some thoughts that really do move.



Thank you so much for clicking through and listening to the track and reviewing it. The more you listen the more it climbs up the charts. Thanks guys!
