The Cunning make raw, real rock & roll, firing twin barrels of guitar-fueled stomp and anthemic pop melodies on the band's newest EP, Run Through the Desert. Based in Nashville, the band's four members kickstarted their careers across the globe, cutting their teeth in locations like New Zealand (where frontman Sean Cunningham charted one of the country's biggest hits of the 21st century as the frontman of ATLAS) and the UK (where drummer Steve Forrest spent the better part of a decade performing with platinum-selling band Placebo) before coming together in Tennessee. Together, they bring a wide, worldly approach to rock & roll, teaming with producer Jay Tooke to create a sound that nods to the British crunch of Led Zeppelin one minute and the anthemic American sweep of My Morning Jacket the next.

This is a band that's firing on all cylinders, taking its cues from both the past and present while making something proudly new. It's classic rock & roll for the modern age. It's music for big places.
