The sounds of ‘60s pop music are blended with the raw power of garage punk on Hunx & His Punx’s sophomore set, Too Young To Be in Love. It’s a phenomenal album.
“Lovers Lane” is reminiscent of “Da-Doo” from the Little Shop of Horrors musical, featuring the soulful harmonies of Hunx’s all girl backing band. Hunx’s spoken word section, meanwhile, adds a seductive feeling to the song. “Tonite Tonite” has an incredible opening, with punky guitars and sharp drums compelling listeners to play it non-stop. “He’s Coming Back” has a chorus that encourages one to sing along, even more so than the album’s other infectious tracks.
All the songs on this record are great, with not a weak moment to break the momentum that builds throughout. As a whole, it’s well-structured, with each song flowing into the next. Hunx is a great vocalist and frontman; he sings with an energy and seductiveness that accents his songwriting. The album title is a misnomer, though, as Hunx proves he can sing with the passion of man in love. Hunx, in tandem with his stellar band, has created an album with the potential to become a garage rock classic.
