Brand new Haunt Pop act Younger Hunger wants to soundtrack your late-night drives. The trio — Tony Davia, Lou Connor, and Lauren Potts — came together after a night of playing Nintendo 64 and drinking milkshakes in Long Beach, California. Produced by Adam Castilla (the Colourist) and mastered by Joe LaPorta (David Bowie, The Weeknd, Beach House), the group takes inspiration from artists such as The Teenagers, The Smiths, and MGMT.
Old video games run in this group's DNA, and that is reflected in their sonics. The songs have a sonic palette that wouldn't sound out of place on soundtracks from vintage games like Golden Eye and Street Fighter II. The group's debut EP utilizes these sounds to draw on themes of nostalgia, anxiety, and young adulthood. Recorded between several "spare-bedroom" studios, the EP aims to create an intimate setting to reflect its lyrical themes.
