Album Notes
Untamed is Hooka Hey’s first new record in more than 3 years!
It contains 5 songs blending rock, heavy blues and soul that are all pretty different but remain cohesive. There are some fast rockers but also some heavier and almost tribal grooves, some spooky tones, and some mid-Eastern licks. There is extensive use of electric guitars, bass and drums combined with a lot of effects for sonic diversity as well as a touch of keys here and there for atmospheric relevance.

It is recommended to listen to the songs in order, but there will be no negative consequences if shuffled. Playing it on repeat at a high volume is recommended as it produces a better appreciation of the music.
This labor of love was recorded on tape in Austin, Texas, by Erik Wofford at Cacophony Recorders Studio and by Alex Lyon at The Bubble. Mixing duties were divided between Rene Ogando and Alex Lyon whereas mastering was performed by Alex Lyon also in Austin, Texas.
Artwork was designed by Casey Eickhoff.
We have enjoyed the journey in creating these songs and hope they satisfy the highest standards for your listening pleasure.

KUTX – Austin Music Minute I
“There’s a reverence here for the kind of serious rockin’out that leaves you sweaty, grimy and wanting more.”

KUTX – Austin Music Minute II
“It’s a band truly dedicated to genuine rock that gets you working up a sweat.”

Elmore Magazine (US)
“Hooka Hey makes music with an attitude that mixes a bit of each slogan, creating strange, exciting new sounds that are hard to categorize, but addicting to listen to. “Untamed” is a vampy, slow-burning track, oozing with a dark and seductive charm.”

Raw Ramp (US)
“Shaken and dangerously harmful blues-rock with more heat and tears than a smoky Southern barbecue”
For Us Not Them (US) “This is not the kind of music you bring home to meet your parents. This is the music you pull out your dirty dancing moves for.”

Cut From Steel (US)
“Hooka Hey plays the type of rock music that never goes out of style. Fast, aggressive, and sort of grimy”

Pen’s Eye View (US)
“You’ve heard the phrase, “Keep Austin Weird” – “Transylvanian Voodoo” masters Hooka Hey, are keeping the Texas City friggin’ awesome. This music a difficult soul/blues/rock blend to describe, but it certainly contains some tribal grooves, some spooky tones, and some mid-Eastern licks.”

Deep In The Music (US)
“A pretty hot straight burning punky classic rock tune with hints of psych and trippiness”

Tour Worthy (US)
“Hooka Hey gets right what most in their genre get wrong–craft structurally sound songs, then add distortion, thick vox affectation, sludgy bass, and not the other way around as in the case of others.”
