We Are Hunted is a new online service which trawls the social networks, forums, P2P networks and blogs to find cool new music for you to stream and enjoy. The site compiles a simple chart listing with images and an embedded player to let you listen to the stuff immediately. The rest of the content is fairly conventional, commenting, related artists, artist blurbs etc.
Nice implementation, good search and a clean feature set make this something to watch for the future. I do wonder whether they’d improve the front page UI with a slightly smaller set of track images, but that’s just me being pedantic. A detachable player would also be nice, but it’s beta so we’ll forgive.
We Are Hunted is an online music chart. It listens to what is happening in online music across blogs, social networks, forums, Twitter and P2P networks to chart the top songs online. In the physical world, charts are built on shipped albums. Online, traditionally, they have been a count of digital downloads. We Are Hunted is different in that it tracks sentiment, expression and advocacy. Visually driven, intuitive and simple, We Are Hunted seeks to be a daily destination for music lovers looking for their next favourite artist track or song.
