Our fave foster band The Hunting Birds are at it again, with another huge support slot announced this week.
The Freo folk group have been going from strength to strength since the Music Insight community propelled them onto the Falls Festival lineup earlier this year.
Despite being barely old enough to recall Hanson’s biggest hits, Hunting Birds vocalist Connor Minervini said he and his bandmates were incredibly excited to be sharing a stage with one of the biggest pop acts of the 90s.
“Getting an opportunity to play to a large crowd at a venue like Metro City is something we really try and devour – not to mention our mothers are very excited that Hanson are back in town,” Minervini said.
“Honestly, I knew MMMbop growing up – it was thrashed on the radio! Since we learnt about the show I went back to listen to some of their new tunes, some cool poppy things happening, which is always like sugar to the ears. I think we like to encapsulate some sort of pop-chart nuance with our style of music. So in that way I can see some sort of symmetry, it should be interesting to see how the crowd warms to us.”
He said punters who get down early to check out The Hunting Birds “might just come across something new they can sink their teeth into”.
Hanson and The Hunting Birds play Metro City on June 15.
