HUNGER - Naked

Many of you should already know Austrian alt/synth-pop band HUNGER from the 2018 Mitsubishi commercial or a feature on Netflix's 13 Reasons Why.

HUNGER hails from the idyllic suburbs of Vienna and 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.

HUNGER have a brand new single out. Released last August 24, it's called Naked and was produced by Daniele Autore, mixed by Jeremy Wheatley (Depeche Mode, Taylor Swift) and mastered by Joe La Porta (Imagine Dragons, Panic! at the Disco, The Neighborhood).

A moody, melodic blend of synth-pop and alt-rock, Naked embodies a deeply visceral cinematic experience. The Austrian musicians offer heavy beats overtop layered harmonics to give a positive piece of their reality to society's effervescent negativity in their new single.

"People tend to question themselves if they’re good enough, good looking or smart enough while being put into boxes from other people,” explains the band. “Constant judgment in our society these days create a lot of pressure, especially on young people.

Naked is a true gem for lovers of synth-driven pop rock. Check it out now clicking on the image.

Ocean Jet - A Part Of You

Ocean Jet is a very interesting indie synthpop band from Kostroma, Russia. They released their debut EP Echoes on December 25, 2013; the EP featured the single Distant, a song that got a huge amount of positive feedback and reviews and put the Russian band on the map.

March 2015 saw the release of the band's first full-length album, Vengeance (watch the video for the leading single Naked here).

The Word Never Dropped is the title of the new EP, released last March 3 via Kometa Music Records and featuring the single A Part Of You: watch the recently published video clicking on the image.

This is a band to follow, expecially if you're into modern electronic music with an indie rock mood and bands like Hurts, Depeche Mode, OneRepublic, 30 Seconds To Mars.
