There isn’t a dull moment on this peppy-paced, feel-good album from Brisbane four-piece indie-pop band Hungry Kids Of Hungary – even the resentful songs sound cheerful with their cheeky keyboard riffs, lively bass and 60s pop-inspired guitar playing.

There isn’t a dull moment on this peppy-paced, feel-good album from Brisbane four-piece indie-pop band Hungry Kids Of Hungary – even the resentful songs sound cheerful with their cheeky keyboard riffs, lively bass and 60s pop-inspired guitar playing. Just to balance it all out though, there is the occasional indie ballad such as “No Returns” or chilled “Closer Apart” that has all the sweetness of a Westlife ballad but the cool factor of the indie mood and quirky guitar. The perfect driving-with-the-windows-down-wind-blowing-in-my-hair-sunshine-everywhere soundtrack for summer…and hopefully a good indicator of what’s to come from this talented foursome!

Good work guys, I really dig the chilled out vibe that just builds and excites you. A beautiful ending, great musicianship. Music is set apart from a lot of bands that run along a similar vein.

One of those nice road trip songs. Saw these guys live and really liked the energy they bought before us. Expect to see them move onto bigger and better things.

Indie vocals with a sprinkle jazz in the guitar part at certain parts. A really chilled out song, fun to listen to.

I have tried very hard to hate this band, but i just can't. Their lyrics are very original, the guitar sounds like it is dripped in honey, and the vocals are interesting without being abhorrent. Perfect for a car trip to the Gold Coast, with absolutely nothing to do. If this is the future of Brisbane bands, it's in good hands.

This is a gorgeous track by a lovely band that I personally will cry for if they do not make it as they deserve to. A powerful message of love and an attempt to fix things once they have been broken. A beautiful love story with a riff I cannot keep out of my head for long. Divinely depressing, if ever a reason to feel sad.

What more can we say about this song which hasn't already been said. Thee guys came out of nowhere and delivered some seriously cool lounge room tunes. Set It Right is a soft rock classic.

More great stuff from you guys, really loving your work. Very impressive, sounds a bit like a mix of The Beach Boys and Kaiser Chiefs, but with more guitar and drums.

catchy. i like your voice. i like the high bits; i don't think i can even sing that high. it sounds heavenly. i also like the tambourine that's hidden in there. i always get hungry when i hear your name.
