Ever since Hunx added three ultra-fierce Punkettes to his band, I’ve been a major devotee. “Lovers Lane” from Hunx and His Punx latest album “Too Young to Be in Love” might just be my favorite song of the year so far. It’s a feisty, ’60s throwback power-ballad (does that even make sense?) which showcases both Hunx’s songwriting and the Punkettes’ vocal skills – particularly that of Shannon Shaw (of Shannon and the Clams). OMG, does her voice serve some serious goosebumps.
Anyway, I was thrilled when they decided to make a video for this amazing tune and it’s even more awesome than I expected. Think PG-rated John Waters. Stop-motion animation featuring dismembered body parts. SERIOUS glitter. Enjoy!
Fetch some Hunx records at Insound if you want to achieve extreme happiness. And if you want to achieve even extremer happiness, see them when they play in NYC: 9/3 at Mercury Lounge and 9/17 at Knitting Factory!
