Birmingham born duo Hunger Moon released their latest single ‘Patience’ on April 10th and it’s just beautiful from start to finish. The melancholy pop track is an expression of the internal battle songwriter Natalie Jenkins faced to leave a relationship that was, in her mind, already over.
Of the track Natalie explains, “I knew things needed to change, but I didn’t anticipate the level of change to come. I didn’t want to cause hurt, but had to learn to accept that I couldn’t become the right person. I had to have patience with myself and recognise that what I wanted was not mutual”.
Already a firm fan of these two, this latest single is an eruption of musical emotions I’ll happily dive into. Hunger Moon’s music has been described as a sonic canvas, and I couldn’t think of a better way to sum up the emotional strength and tenderness that is carried in both the vocals and crescendo of the guitars on this track.
And check out this live performance of Hunger Moon in in Cologne, Germany with Sofar Sounds. Sublime.
