Hunger ‘Light It Up’ With Brand New Single

Alternative pop-rock trio, HUNGER, have revealed their brand new single ‘Light It Up’ (via Born and Raised Records), the first release of a monthly release cycle leading up to their debut album Mosaik to be released on December 20, 2019.

Boasting a solid, driving instrumental serving as the foundation for the uplifting choir-esques vocal arrangements, ‘Light It Up’ is a rousing anthem exhibiting the fine chemistry the trio has established over the years.

Friends since childhood, Daniel Rumpel, Johannes Herbst and Lucas Fendrich grew up listening to punk-rock and pop in their hometown of Vienna, Austria. They formed HUNGER in early 2015, following the dissolution of their former bands, with the initial intention of establishing themselves as a songwriting trio. However, when they recorded their first songs in the studio, they realized that they were yearning to be played in front of a live audience. Standard song structures and melodies were disregarded in favour of the tone and evocation of the music, resulting in vast, dark, cinematic sounds and a moody blend of alt-rock and synth-pop.

Hunger

To date, HUNGER has garnered global attention through their track ‘Amused’ being featured as part of the soundtrack to Netflix’s ’13 Reasons Why’, on several TV and online commercials, and amassing over 3 million Spotify plays. The band has amassed over one million views on Youtube as well as heavy rotation on Austria’s Hitradio Ö3, the New Music Friday Playlist on Spotify, and the Global Viral 50 Chart. Their extensive touring schedule has seen them perform at a string of festivals, including Out Of The Woods Festival with the likes of Alt-J, Phoenix, Feist, Sohn, Milky Chance, and The Strumbellas.
