From Brisbane, Australia, check out indie-pop foursome Hungary Kids Of Hungary. Having already conquered their home country, they’re now venturing towards the US and UK to continue making waves. Tourdates at MuseExpo in LA and The Great Escape in Brighton will no doubt get this group noticed, but chances are, you’ve already heard their music. Busy on the airwaves and licensing front, the band’s last single ‘Scattered Diamonds’ got play on KROQ and KCRW, as well as sync love in The Deep End andUgly Betty. With two EPs already under their belt, Hungary Kids Of Hungary have just finished recording their debut album due for release in July.
They just sounded like drinks when you put them next to each other.
A Hudson Mohawke would be served at Pitchfork bar in the form of a ‘Rising 5‘; a sick blend of funky synths, syncopated drums and promise from this Glaswegian. Check the teaser track from his upcoming Butter LP (out October 13).
You’d pick up a Sea Wolf at his myspace. Full of ‘Wicked Blood’, this drink is lush, full of flavor and best shared with friends. The album opener off White Water, White Bloom, to me sounds like that Arcade Fire song that doesn’t need to reach a catastrophic build to stand alone.
