Austrian alt-pop trio HUNGER are back with new music entitled ‘Naked’.

The band’s moody and melodic blend of synth-pop and alt-rock embodies a deeply visceral cinematic experience as the new single demonstrates.

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.

‘Naked’ comments on the all-too-relatable emotions of inner struggle, bolstered by the ever-present feeling of self-doubt in a society where social media forces constant comparison.

HUNGER’s new single is the trio’s first release since their 2017 EP ‘Amused’ which saw the title-track featured in a Mitsubishi advert and as a soundtrack on Netflix’s 13 Reasons Why.

Speaking about ‘Naked’, the band said: “People tend to question themselves if they’re good enough, good looking or smart enough while being put into boxes from other people.

“Constant judgment in our society these days create a lot of pressure, especially on young people.”
