Hungry Kids of Hungary | Music Artists on Indie Accent

Hungry Kids of Hungary


While the mere mention of their name often invokes raised eyebrows and amused smiles among the uninitiated, Brisbane four-piece Hungry Kids of Hungary produce music that inspires equal measures of curiosity and joy. Dressing their immaculate indie tunes with a healthy dose of 60’s pop sensibility and lashings of soul HKoH have wasted no time in carving out a name for themselves on the Australian music scene since 2007 with a quartet of radio singles and their relentless touring regime. Their debut self titled EP featured the incandescent single ‘Set It Right’ which pricked the ears of radio programmers and audiences alike setting the stage for a mammoth 2009. With a hefty touring schedule in place HKoH somehow found the time to jump back into the studio for a few days, coming out with their second EP – Mega Mountain. Much like the band themselves, the EP was a quartet of lively pop energy entwined with layers of thought provoking vitality. Key tracks included the radio favourite body-bopping ‘Scattered Diamonds’ and the stunning piano-driven ballad ‘Old Money’. Once again hitting the road, the band spent the next eight months touring the nation continuously, supporting the likes of Little Birdy and Bertie Blackman and winning fans with their stellar musicianship and boyish charm. November 2009 saw the band stand on their own eight feet, parading their buoyant brand of indie pop around Australia on their very first national headline jaunt. The tour coincided with the release of a brand new single, ‘Let You Down’, which provided the first taste of the new material since the release of Mega Mountain in early 2009. The song is the sound of four Hungry Kids doing what they do best - delivering pure pop goodness in a neat package of their trademark, dual-harmony brilliance, it channels a time when recordings were captured to tape, music was joyful and harmonies reigned supreme, even when accompanied by tales of heartbreak and loss. The monumentally busy year was capped off with solid festival appearances on the Australian Summer circuit. With an overseas assault to the UK and USA under their belt, the lads are currently bunkered down getting busy to deliver a much anticipated debut album in 2010. The band split up in 2013.
