Hunter Hunted – “New Christmas”

Despite what it feels like in sunny Southern California, I hear it is actually the holiday season. Next week is many people’s last days at work/school before heading off to spend time opening presents and baking cookies. Fellow Los Angelenos Hunter Hunter have apparently been feeling the same confusion about spending holidays in the sun and even wrote this beautiful song about it. But “New Christmas” has a second deeper meaning when put into the context of our warming planet and its affect on all the animals that live here. Its not just us who are confused by warmer temps this time of year. Polar bears everywhere are confused by warmer temps all year round. The touching video below for “New Christmas” showcases a lot of lovely polar bear play but a shockingly small amount of any actual ice or snow. It’s for these bears that Hunter hunted have dedicated “New Christmas”. Please enjoy the song and consider donating something to the cause via the links below. Thats the true holiday spirit.

[SXSW INTERVIEW] Hunter Hunted on band roles, touring,

Hunter Hunted have fought a long and winding road to their current position as rising stars of feel-good indie pop. We let them rest their road-weary behind in the RV and got some stories from the road as well as dirt on who is the “tour dad” and who writes their infamous Instagram captions…

[PREMIERE] Air Life – “Tell Me Anything”

Most people would be content to be the drummer in the quickly rising LA bands Hunter Hunted and Body Parts but Taylor Dexter is not one to be easily satisfied. The drummer-turned-frontman’s new project Air Life sounds little like his other two bands, focusing instead on sexy grooves and jazzy riffs. The bands says “Tell Me Anything” “is the sound of the pregnant pause between lovers, the nervous moment between the time when something needs to be said, and the moment someone says it.” I’m not sure anything needs to be said at all. Just turn up the music, turn down the lights, and sort it out with bodies. Just get dressed by May when Air Life takes over Monday nights at The Satellite for their residency.

[MP3] Hunter Hunted – “Keep Together” (Viceroy Remix)

Hunter Hunted - Keep Together (Viceroy Remix)

Viceroy and Hunter Hunted are not an obvious pairing but this remix is smooth as hell. Viceroy turns down the anthem to a more sedate pool party vibe that is definitely his style. And perhaps these guys too.

so you see, it’s you and me and everybody in between, it doesn’t matter if we’re green

As the world’s post-NYE hangover finally begins to lift, it’s time for some celebration. Celebration that we survived the holidays. Celebration that we are surviving this winter (LA does get cold!). Celebration that Hunter Hunted are live debuting in one month and we have some serious “wooahh” rehearsals ahead to be able to belt along with this mega jam. (P.S. I’ve heard a version of “Keep Together” with a F-bomb it in. Don’t tell Mom.)
