Offering up “fast and fuzzy guitars and a catchy bass lines,” (The Soda Shop) eclectic blues/rock band Hooka Hey releases their video for the first single, “Nasty,” from their forthcoming sophomore EP, Untamed, due out 2/10/15,
Raised on American rock music and drawing on contemporary rock acts including Queens of The Stone Age, Jack White as well as legendary artists such as Led Zeppelin and The Who, founding member Hugo de Saint Quentin displays “a reverence here for the kind of serious rockin’ out that leaves you sweaty, grimy and wanting more” (KUTX). After living in NYC for two years in the early 2000’s and finding his way through several bands, de Saint Quentin moved back to Paris where Hooka Hey was born and received extensive airplay on the national radio station Radio Nova, which landed them gigs with international artists like Built To Spill, Ted Leo and Miles Kane, not to mention The Black Keys in Paris in 2012. Now, de Saint Quentin calls Austin home and feels genuinely connected to the vivid music scene. Untamed is Hooka Hey’s first release in three years since the acclaimed debut EP, Little Things (2011).
