SOPHIE HUNGER - 1983

by SOPHIE HUNGER

  • Release Date: 26.03.2010
  • Catalog No: TWOGTL 009

On the cover we are faced with a smiling woman whose hands are guns, one gun against her temple, the other aimed at the observer. 1983 Sophie Hunger’s new album appears to aim at a whole generation, but also at herself. Caught in this bitter-sweet concentration, we experience the liberating expression of Sophie Hunger’s development. Her debut Monday’s Ghost (Nr 1 in the Swiss album charts) in spring 2009, described as “excellent” (Le Monde), “like a young Polly Harvey, she’s hard to ignore” (Mojo UK) and “leaves nobody untouched“ (FAZ), led to her being named as one of the 10 most important newcomers of 2009 (Rolling Stone Magazine DE). That her new album should be coming out already is quite a surprise. But listening to 1983 it is clear that here someone is developing in new directions and very quickly.
