Los Angeles-based musician A.O. Gerber shares new single ‘Hunger’, which is taken from forthcoming album “Meet Me At The Gloaming”.

The track is a tender and uninhibited rumination on the opposing forces faced in our lives and culture.

“This song sort of wrote itself in the midst of a really devastating fire season in LA. I’d been thinking a lot about the opposing forces of desire and negation, all the different ways we both consume and restrict as individuals and as a culture. I’ve spent so much of my life vacillating between these polarities, making myself small physically and spiritually. I haven’t always had the ability to critique that impulse in myself but it felt good to do that here.”

The vivid video directed by Vivian Wolfson accompanies the release with a light hearted approach.

“This song is lyrically heavy, so I knew I wanted the video to poke a bit of fun at itself. All I told Vivian (the director, who — let it be known — graduated high school less than a month after we filmed) was that I wanted cake to be shoved in my face at some point. From that she came up with this absurdly stunning set design and concept. Everyone on the crew put so much heart into it. I’ve never laughed so much on set.”

Gerber will also be heading out on tour later this year, with tickets on sale here.
