Violent Soho – Hungry Ghost

Violent Soho frontman Luke Boerdam struggled to write Hungry Ghost. Their last recording came out four years ago, an eternity in the internet age, and the singer reportedly found his writing process in stagnation, tired and bored of everything that came out. The solution was to look internally at the music that they really wanted to make; while their previous work was very much indebted to ’90s alternative, Hungry Ghost no longer wades in that pool, instead diving headfirst into the early pioneers of grunge without sounding like a pure retread.
