Hunny
The Southern California six piece made a name for themselves this year releasing their first single “Cry for Me” which was met with universal acclaim gaining more than 900,000 plays since it’s premiere and charting the Top “Most Popular Tracks” on Hype Machine. HUNNY began as a solo effort from front man/lead guitarist Jason Yarger who brought the music to his long time collaborators Jake Goldstein on guitar and bassist Gregory Horne who helped cultivated the early sounds of the band. The project went on to include third guitarist Jacob Munk, keyboardist Kevin Grimmett and drummer Joey Anderson who rounded out the outfit and established the unique blend of pop & 80’s post punk.


Their debut EP “Pain/Ache/Loving” was done with producer Eric Palmquist (Bad Suns, Trash Talk) where the band channels a wide array of influences, blending post-punk tendencies with their love for classic artists like Prince and The Cure. The result is a lovelorn themed EP that paints a colorful picture of heartbreak and frustration through angst driven anthems like their new single “Natalie”.

Figs Vision
The relationship between Jordan Spoliansky and Gunner Sixx is a story of beauty and bewilderment. Self-described as 'survivors of gross misguidance, and moreover, as brothers deeply entwined in parallel living’. Perhaps the band's explanation of who they are provides more confusion than clarity. What is abundantly evident, however, is that together they make emotional and outright mystical pop music, joined as one under the nom de Figs Vision.

The musical matrimony of Gunner and Jordan was spawned by a motorcycle accident when they were only 14 years old. As they were riding dirt bikes in a harsh LA rainstorm, Jordan lost control and effectively launched his bike from a muddy bank, down a steep hillside, and into a deep crevasse. After much discussion on how to retrieve the motorcycle, the two boys got a long rope, anchored it to a rebar stake, and slowly descended into the ravine. As their feet splashed down into the watery basin of a deep mossy cave, they quickly noticed traces of human inhabitance - a smoldering fire, some loose articles of clothing, a heap of garbage, and even a rocking chair in relatively good condition. Someone was living in this cave. As they continued deeper, almost forgetting about the lost bike, the boys met a man who they came to know as Fig, whose vision birthed what has become the mission of Jordan and Gunner’s natural lives.

Such was the creation of Figs Vision, whose music and collective sounds fuse the infectious pop of Prince with the attitude of the Talking Heads. Their songs are delivered in melodic grooves and a raw grit distinctly their own, as evidenced in their self-produced debut LP Mother, released in July 2014. Since then the band have been honing the live Figs Vision experience to match the colorful intrigue of their music. With a passion to perform and reform, the band are dead set on fulfilling their destiny, and with new songs coming out in 2016, the next chapter in their journey is about to begin.
