Owing an early interest in music to her jazz-loving parents, Swiss-born Sophie Hunger’s foray into our ears first began with an acoustic guitar and indie folk leanings which saw her release a chart-topping debut album back in 2008 (‘Monday’s Ghost’). Offering a fragile yet mature voice, Hunger has earned herself a reputation for mesmeric live performances and became the first Swiss artist to ever play Glastonbury. Fast forward eight years, Hunger now calls Berlin her home, where she developed a passion for analogue synths, drum machines and electronic music. It’s here that she wrote her first full English album ‘ Molecules’ (to be released in August); a record the singer songwriter herself describes as ‘minimal electronic folk’. Don’t miss this opportunity to witness the manifestation of Hunger’s new sounds and ideas.
