Biography

Brisbane, Australia (2007 – present)

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.
