Banta are giving fans another taste of their new album with the release of their new song "Hungry Heart." The acoustic ballad was inspired by a book that singer Sharaya Mikael read and connected with. The song can be streamed on Songwriting Magazine and below!
"I read a book called Turning Stones by Mark Parent, that followed the experiences of a child social worker in NYC in the 90's," singer Sharaya Mikael explains. "One of the kids in this book inspired this song. The words just kind of fell onto the page as I stepped into her perspective. 'Hungry Heart' is a song about feeling unlovable and sabotaging any chances of love for fear of loosing it. I think we can all relate to that feeling. My heart broke for this little girl who had built up so many walls, when really she was just starving for love and affection."
Banta's full-length debut album Dark Charms will be released April 15, 2016 via eOne Music/Fast Plastic.
