Today, alternative pop-rock trio, HUNGER, have just premiered their new single ‘Light It Up’ via Born and Raised Records. ‘Light It Up’ is the first single of their debut album, Mosaik due to be released on December 20, 2019.
Childhood friends; Daniel Rumpel, Johannes Herbst and Lucas Fendrich formed the band after growing up in Austria and discovering punk-rock together. Slowly, as they grew as musicians they leaned more towards dark, cinematic sounds and a moody blend of alt-rock and synth-pop. The result is a sound that could be comprable to Imagine Dragons, The Neighbourhood and 30 Seconds To Mars, while maintaining their own unique sound. Their latest single, “Light It Up” is a step towards the more pop side of influences while maintaining their aforementioned uniqueness.
“’Light It Up‘ is about adventures, moments and memories we’ve experienced and still want to experience in our lives. It’s an anthem for going out and to live and experience life and its freedoms. We wrote and recorded the song in a little hut in the Austrian Alps. The ‘gospel choir’ halfway through the song was recorded in a tiny kitchen and is basically just the three of us and our producer singing in hundreds of tracks.” – HUNGER on their latest single
Hunger will be performing on August 16 in Vienna, Austria at Hafen Open Air.
