Not many bands grab national radio airplay, land some major festivals, get props in music bible NME and land their first national tour in massive venues with a band like British India…. all in the space of four months.

Familiar Stranger marks a significant point in the Bob Evans story so far: one that sees the ‘end’ of the acoustic folk troubadour and replaces him with an artist intent on opening new doors in his musically creative mindscape.

After the lingering success of their debut LP Escapades in 2010, Brisbane’s Hungry Kids Of Hungary have emerged with a fresh pallet of summery, highly-detailed and intelligent rock in You’re A Shadow.
