Since having started out in 2017, Northern Irish band Hunkpapa has played some of Europe’s most iconic stages, proving themselves as a band fit to fill stadiums and win crowds over. The band describes themselves as “four eccentrics from Armagh, with a loose grip on social norms and reality – specialising in anthemic bangers.” With their new single ‘Cappuccino’, the four-piece has yet again proven the accuracy of their own statement.
‘Cappuccino’ reflects on the band’s personal journey from paths of conventional careers to where they find themselves now – one of the most exciting upcoming acts in the UK. Mixed by Mark Needham (Mr. Brightside), ‘Cappuccino’ gives the listener an experience like no other, highlighting Hunkpapa’s signature sincere style with an infectious edge.
Comments on Hunkpapa’s latest release: “Cappuccino is Hunkpapa’s take on the suppression of dreams that all too often comes with young professional life. “Step out into the world.””
With previous singles having been endorsed by Snow Patrol’s Gary Lightbody, it is anticipated that ‘Cappuccino’ will equally impress.
The young band has just released their UK/IRE tour schedule for ‘The Cappuccino Tour’, starting in August 2019. Hunkpapa will be playing in iconic venues all over the UK, including King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut in Glasgow, The Grand Social in Dublin and Islington’s O2 Academy.
