Behind the Track

Behind The Track: Hunger Moon

3rd June 2019

What was the inspiration/is there a story behind your track?

Somewhat ironically, our happiest track yet was written after the death of Keith Flint. It really resonated with us as musicians, for whom mental health is at the forefront of the industry and our careers within it. The track deals with male suicide and compares two perspectives – someone who sees only one way out, and then someone who is overseeing their strife.

How did you approach writing this song?

It came across pretty naturally actually, and only took us ten minutes maximum. It was the first track that we wrote using an acoustic guitar, which I think definitely inspired the percussive nature of the music and the guitar part especially. The recording process is definitely a part of our songwriting, where the song takes a different form and often sees us adding more electronics along with our acoustic side.

Do you have a favourite line/section of the song?

“It’s just too much Honey, oh, I’ve given up on me.”

Can you describe your sound in three words?

Melancholy alternative pop.

How do you feel your sound has developed from studying at BIMM?

It’s definitely developed into something that we are really happy with right now. The exciting thing is that we are still progressing, we never thought our releases would sound the way they do now a year ago. BIMM gives us the space to write and find where we want to be.

What’s the best thing about studying at BIMM?

The support we have had from our tutors and friends, it’s like a little community that all helps one another.
