Hailing from the idyllic suburbs of Vienna, HUNGER first formed in early 2014. Childhood friends Daniel Rumpel and Johannes Herbst approached long-term fellow vocalist Lucas Fendrich with the intention of creating a truly dark and cinematic sound. Once they’d developed a batch of demos, the three musicians headed to the outskirts of Vienna, built up a studio in a borrowed apartment and brought their sound to life. They’ve managed to build multiple successes from their short careers.
Standard song structures and melodies are disregarded in favor of the tone and evocation of the music. Their perspectives shifted when the band went into studio with British producer Dan Weller for their debut EP Amused which also featured a single of the same name. The trio channels big emotion into a moody but melodic blend of alt-rock and synth-pop, resulting in a vast, dark, cinematic sound. The EP expanded on their deeply visual sensibilities by delivering a gorgeously gritty video for ‘Gravity’ made in collaboration with Christian Lamb (an acclaimed director known for his work with artists like Childish Gambino, Coldplay, Bob Dylan, Madonna, Taylor Swift, and Rihanna). The single Amused also raked up over 2.5 million streams on Spotify, a Mitsubishi commercial that has run for the entirety of 2018, a feature on 13 Reasons Why and touring opportunities w Against The Current in addition to festival plays with the likes of Alt-J, Phoenix, Feist, Sohn, Milky Chance, and The Strumbellas.
