Congratulations to The Cunning, Our Newest Artist of the Month!

Congratulations to The Cunning, Our Newest Artist of the Month!

The Cunning kind of swept this round, pulling ahead in the last few days with a sizeable lead.  Frontman Sean Cunningham (get it?) started the group in 2013 after leaving his New Zealand-based project ATLAS to return stateside. The foursome have been building their reputation as steadfast rock'n'rollers ever since. They possess a straighforward dedication to the genre, puncuated by a few refreshing jinks here and there thanks to seasoned veterans manning all four fronts. Their win coincides nicely with the release of their newest video, "Lonesome No More." The track is slightly reminiscent of The Features, with a little Anthony Kiedis spin on some of the vocals. It's a great track to debut as a single; I can't get enough of that gut-rumbling bass.  The Cunning are preparing to release their first EP this week, and have a show coming up August 23rd for The Hot Chicken and Jorts Festival at Mayday Brewery in Murfreesboro. At the moment is has not been confirmed whether the band will be performing in jorts, but positive speculation is high.  -Terra James-Jura
