Today is the day. The Sydney-born, London-based singer/songwriter Mali-Koa births her debut album ‘Hunger.’ The rising pop sensation also premiers the visuals for the title track, a focus point of the entire record.
Mali-Koa talks about what ‘Hunger’ means to her: “You always know when you write a special song, ‘Hunger’ was that song for me. It was born from a place of love and ambition, with equal parts disappointment and longing. The lyrics were sharp but honest and the message no matter how daunting, just as hopeful. It was the ugly truth, but as I’d always known it – real and optimistic. I realised after we’d written it just how much this particular story above all others meant to me. It was about all the obstacles, my successes, and my shortcomings I’d faced. It’s a nod to the impossible and all-consuming dream, and the lives we build around them and manifest for ourselves. The day I wrote ‘Hunger’ in Nashville, I remember thinking, “this is it, this is what I want to say.” It’s the title track of the album because without ‘Hunger’, I’m almost certain there would be no record at all”.
