Bio

The Hungry kids of Hungary is a band made up of four gents whose musical inspiration touches on Blues, Rock, Soul, R&B and 1960 style pop-rock. On the surface, their songs are catchy, rhythmic and well balanced with fetching guitar chops and contempory stylings. But also employ light and shade, and sweet vocal harmonies that'll knock the pants of you. It's basically fun and energetic music that anyone can get into...Even Grandma! HKOH have played a massive run of shows in the last couple of months and are set to play a string of supports including The Boat People, The Seabellies, The Devoted Few, Washington and Kid Confucius. Here's what some peeps have to say: ''Drawing on a broad range of influences including a hefty drawing from the blues, soul and rock classics of the later ‘60s, the kids provided an eclectic and soulful set of sonic surprises. You could still make comparisons to acts such as The Cold War Kids and The Shins, and while these comparisons would certainly be no crime, Hungry Kids of Hungary seem to stake their claim in a musical spot that is quite refreshing in its difficulty to pin down to an obvious, clichéd derivation of something else.'' -Live Review Oct 08- FASTER LOUDER ''seamless, intelligent shimmering pop with instant appeal '' - Pat Whyte, The Courier Mail
