Hunz is a three-piece electronic pop band, spearheaded by Brisbane-based electronic musician and producer, Hans Van Vliet. With a background in music programming and motion design, Hans pulls his notes out of a binary soup of ones and zeroes, hand-crafting synth patches and beats from scratch. The result is a mix of pulsating, glitchy electronics and ethereal vocals that hint at the sinister, but succumb to the pleasure of pop hooks instead.

Hunz the band is much more than just Hans the person. The songs are brought to life by drummer Richie Young and bassist Phil Evans, and recent collaborations with animators, motion designers and visualists to produce film clips and live visuals have ensured that Hunz’s raw, emotive and lo-fi aesthetic is just as much visual as it is sonic.

Previous releases When Victims Fight (2008) and Thoughts That Move (2009) have received critical acclaim, with comparisons being drawn to Nine Inch Nails, Thom Yorke and Gotye. The band have also been working on a music and gaming side-project, 7bithero, the fruits of which will be available later this year.
