Hungry Kids Of Hungary announce Splendour In The Grass appearance

| On 14, Apr 2011

Brisbane indie rockers Hungry Kids of Hungary have announced that they will be playing a coveted slot at this year’s Splendour In The Grass, a first for the band, over the July 29 to August 1 weekend in Woodfordia, Queensland. With the band taking a well-earned hiatus from the road to demo material for album number two, this will be a stand-alone set following the completion of their last headline tour for 2011.

This caps another busy 12 months for the band that has seen them drop their debut album Escapades, tour the country over and wow tastemakers and audiences alike at this years South By South West and Canadian Music Week. Currently the band is sitting at #90 on the American College Music Chart and will hit the road in April/May with The Chemist, Andy Bull and Daniel Lee Kendall for their THE FINAL ESCAPADE TOUR.

PRAISE FOR ESCAPADES

triple j Feature Album

★★★★★ – TIME OFF
“A meticulously crafted, stunningly accomplished endeavour, Escapades
is the kind of debut album that deserves to be discussed almost
exclusively in glowing terms. From the cascading guitar lines and
swooning harmonies of opener Coming Around to the Rubber Soul-esque
balladry of six-minute closer The Window Shopper, the record is a
near-flawless work of pop-rock perfection.”

★★★★ THE BRAG – Album of the Week
“That they sing as well as they play is a bonus, that their songs
never tire is a plus, and that their album shows an impressive
diversity of styles without ever losing its character earns extra
points”

★★★★ – SYDNEY MORNING HERALD
“They should be called Restless Kids Of Hungary because this is an
album of exuberant exploration into as many corners of pop as they can
manage.  You name it and chances are the Hungry Kids are trying it”

DRUM MEDIA – CD Of The Week
“Escapades proves and exciting and enthralling debut from another of
Australia’s finest newcomers.”

★★★★ – MX
“Our latest and greatest purveyors of pop have emerged, their
tremendous talents bursting forth, hooks and all, to make Escapades
one of the local releases of the year.”
