Hungry Kids of Hungary Let You Down Easy National Tour

Written by Toby Smith on October 9, 2009

The frequent flyer miles have been piling up for the Hungry Kids of Hungary in 2009 as they zigzagged around the country on the heels of Bertie Blackman and Little Birdy as well as firming up friendships with the likes of Oh Mercy, Tom Ugly and Philadelphia Grand Jury and Washington on the massive triple j presented International Relations Tour. And that’s not to mention a slew of interstate appearances and festival slots at the likes of Big Day Out, Sounds of Spring, and Valley Fiesta.

Now it’s time for the Brisbane-four to stand on their own eight feet, fuel up the Tarago yet again and hit the road on their own merits for The Let You Down Easy National Tour, their first ever headline jaunt.

Encompassing 11 dates around the country, the tour is in support of a brand new single ‘Let You Down’, which is set for release on October 20. The lively ode to romantic woes follows three memorable singles: ‘Set It Right’, ‘Scattered Diamonds’ and the recent ‘Old Money’ that were each rewarded triple j rotation. These singles were all lifted from two EPs – Hungry Kids of Hungary (November 2008) and Mega Mountain (March 2009) – with ‘Let You Down’ being the first taste of things to come.

‘Let You Down’ is the sound of four Hungry Kids doing what they do best, delivering pure pop goodness in a neat package of their trademark, dual-harmony brilliance. The song was produced by Tony Buchen (Andy Bull, Macromantics, Blue King Brown, The Whitlams) in Sydney and channels a time when recordings were captured to tape, music was joyful and harmonies reigned supreme, even when accompanied by tales of heartbreak and loss.

Along with b-side ‘Study Hall’, the two freshly recorded tracks are a first taste of the new material being worked through in preparation for the debut HKoH album release in the first half of 2010.

The Let You Down Easy National Tour takes in 11 shows, across four states.

Melody makers DEEP SEA ARCADE and HKoH favourite BALL PARK MUSIC provide support for several dates, plus a host of super friends join in the fun for their respective local territories.
