Hung’s score reflects the onscreen insanity perfectly offering an extremely twisted musical electronic soundtrack reminiscent of 80s video games complete with chiptune vocals, children’s keyboards and playful bouncy beats, it’s the kind of off kilter musical styling’s you might find from the residents in some of their more delirious pop moments.
Andrew Hung is a producer/composer who first came to prominence as a founding member of electronic-rock band Fuck Buttons. The group is highly regarded for their powerful live performances and all three of their album releases were met with universal critical acclaim. Since their inception in 2007, they have headlined multiple world tours, headlined many festivals including the Park Stage at Glastonbury, collaborated and remixed Jean-Michel Jarre, Moby and Caribou (amongst others), and featured in the opening ceremony of the Olympics 2012 which was watched by over 900 million people worldwide.
In 2012, Hung founded the songstress project Dawn Hunger, which featured his writing and production, performed by an electronic/vocalist duo. The group went on to tour the UK that year and released their single “Stumbling Room” on Hung’s own label “Mourning Joy”.
In 2015, Hung released two eps of fun-inspired music called “Rave Cave 1” and “Rave Cave 2” both written whilst on tour. Pitchfork noted the music was “heavy on the ears and on the heart”. This same year, Hung produced the blistering Mauritius afro-punk 5-piece band Zun Zun Egui. The result was “Shackles Gift”; the album’s hyperkinetic sound heaped praise on by the music press.
At the end of the same year, Hung was asked by director Jim Hosking to compose the soundtrack for his depraved comedy “The Greasy Strangler”. The film featured at Sundance’s Midnight section and drew immediate hype for its singular vision. The Fright File wrote “Complementing every scene in an incalculable way is one of the most pronounced and inspired music scores and soundtracks in recent memory, an instantly catchy, appropriately playful lo-fi orgy of electronic synth compositions from Fuck Buttons band member Andrew Hung”.
In 2016, Hung collaborated with Brit Award winner Beth Orton on her album “Kidsticks”. The two wrote and produced the music together over the course of 2 years. The album was proclaimed a return to Orton’s career high with many proposing it her best yet. Treblezine wrote, “"Hung’s contribution to Kidsticks may be the most striking and sweeping of any collaborator Orton’s ever employed—not a paltry statement since those past partners include William Orbit and Jim O’Rourke”.
