    There Is Still Pain Left
A few months ago, Sophie Hunger got out of bed at four in the morning to go to Berlin’s techno superclub KitKat, where Paula Temple was playing a 5am DJ set.
She could have done what most clubbers do and arrive at midnight, but she wanted to appreciate Temple with a clear head. “I could either have spent all night there and been dead in the morning, or gone at five, so I went at five,” she shrugs. Typical Hunger – in love with the nightlife, but still the sensible girl from Bern.
“Sensible” is relative, though. Since her last album, 2015’s Supermoon, Sophie has made major changes. She moved to Berlin, got passionate about analogue synths and electronic music – Berlin’s heartbeat. She exchanged her classical instruments for drum machines and computer software and decided to write a full English album. Until then, she’d written in a mix of English, French, German and her native Swiss German. "There's something dubious about it. On a good day I like to think I'm heroically defying the tyranny of Anglophone pop culture; on a bad day, I realize I'm simply shunning the confrontation, hiding behind this weird language mix." Recorded almost entirely solo, it’s a twilight journey through the mind of an artist who’s long been loved by musicians and Continental connoisseurs, and is about to plant her flag in the Anglophone world.
