Another promising up-and-comer on the Southeast’s indie scene will make their Azalea City debut when Callaghan’s hosts The Hunts on June 14.
With a lineup boasting seven brothers and sisters, The Hunts’ music is truly a family affair. The members began their respective musical training in childhood and over the years used community performances in their hometown of Chesapeake, Virginia, to establish a solid musical chemistry focusing on beautiful vocal harmonies. Along the way, the siblings also used self-instruction to learn a variety of instruments, ranging from mandolin to drums.
Callaghan’s patrons will hear tracks from the band’s new full-length, “Darlin’ Oh Darlin’.” With a sound falling somewhere between The Lumineers and Of Monsters and Men, each of the 11 tracks is a dreamlike experience filled with layer upon layer of warm vocals and profound instrumental work, begging listeners to close their eyes and succumb to The Hunts’ vivid musical reality.
