Norway: The Hungry Hearts tackle the issue of arts funding in “Sugar Mommy” 2

They were one of the break-out stars of the 2016 national final season with their art pop song “Laika”. Now Norwegian performance band The Hungry Hearts have a new single “Sugar Mommy”. And like their previous songs, it uses disco beats to tackle social issues.

Established as a contemporary art band in 2006, The Hungry Hearts have toured all over Europe. Among other things, they sing about the female body and sexuality — all with with distinct cyber intonation, and multiple layers of meaning whilst making us want to dance.

This time, they are back with “Sugar Mommy”. A club track in the same vein as their smash hit, “Laika”, which stormed into the top five spot of our national finals song list. Speaking exclusively to wiwibloggs, band manager Dag Rye explained:

The background of “Sugar Mommy” is that the former Norwegian Minister of Culture Thorhild Widvey, the current Culture Minister Linda Hofstad and the government in general think it is a new era and that cultures should seek private sponsorship instead of public funding. So, since we are a lesbian art project that requires funding, releasing the song is our own way of pursuing our Sugar Mommy. Also, Sugar Mommy is perhaps a little known concept that few have heard of, but it is identical to the concept Sugar Daddy, and it needed a song. The video is currently being shot and it will be released before Christmas.

We are excited to see this video!

“Sugar Mommy” – The Hungry Hearts (lyrics)

Sugar mommy, sugar mommy
Wish you could be my honey
Sugar mommy hunting at the disco (aha)

Sugar mommy, sugar mommy
Wish you could be my honey
Sugar mommy hunting at the disco (aha)

Pay the rent, money spent
I’m amused, you’re seduced
Call my name, love so true
All for you, all for you

Be my wings, be my heart
Be my toy, to enjoy
Pay the rent, money spent
I’m amused, you’re seduced

You want to play?
Then turn to me
The game is on
It’s not for free

Ish bin dein Sugar Mommy
Du bist my toy to enjoy
I am amusedm you are seduced

Aha, aha, aha, aha

Sugar mommy, sugar mommy
Wish you could be my honey
Sugar mommy hunting at the disco (aha)

Pay the rent, money spent
I’m amused, you’re seduced
Call my name, love so true
All for you, all for you

Be my wings, be my heart
Be my toy, to enjoy
Pay the rent, money spent
I’m amused, you’re seduced

Sugar mommy, sugar mommy
Wish you could be my honey
Sugar mommy hunting at the disco (aha)

Sugar mommy, sugar mommy
Wish you could be my honey
Sugar mommy hunting at the disco (aha)
