Largely written in Hunger’s apartment using the equipment to hand in her kitchen-come-studio, ’Halluzinationen’ has a fevered quality, shaped in part by Berlin’s nocturnal world. The emotionally resonant ‘Maria Magdalena’ was written for a sex worker who frequents the Oranienplatz square where Hunger lives. Magdalena’s presence also inhabits album-opener ‘Liquid Air’, inspired by an illegal oyster bar which used to run out of the basement of Hunger’s apartment building, which both Sophie & Magdalena used to frequent; “You could only enter if you passed an alcohol test indicating a blood alcohol level of more than 0.2 percent. I used to go there when I was writing Halluzinationen.”
