Track Of The Day: Hunger Moon – ‘Patience’

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.

Track Of The Day: Hunger Moon – ‘Honey’

‘Honey’ is the latest single from alt pop duo Hunger Moon, and we’re loving its beautiful harmonies, accompanying keys and touching lyrics.

Written in the days after hearing about the death of Keith Flint from The Prodigy, ‘Honey’ deals with the subject of male suicide; a call to arms for listeners to talk to each other and check up on those around them. At Get In Her Ears we cannot echo that more, with rising rates of isolation, loneliness and mental health, we all need to look out for each other. The act of checking in with a friend can go so much further than we often realise.

 

‘Honey’ is out now. Hear more from Hunger Moon via Soundcloud.
