BARE HUNTER – SINGLE REVIEW

Bare Hunter – Cash Money 
Bare Hunter - Cash Money


Release Date: Out Now

There’s something wonderful about crossing paths with a musician at a random gig, falling in love with the EP they send you, being promised a T-shirt (still waiting, gents) and then getting a very early look at their swanky new video. London trio Bare Hunter have given me exactly that experience which goes down as a 2016 highlight as does this superb release. ‘Cash Money’ is just the most gloriously infectious and immediate song I’ve heard in a long while as forces the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion in to a keg of whiskey, ties up to Royal Blood and then lights the touch paper. The screaming harmonica, the expansive drums and snarling guitar are all just flames licking at the moustachioed vocals and diamante cowboy-boot stomp. All this and there is a social comment to the lyrics too – the perfect Christmas gift.
