Adelaide born and brewed songstress Madeleine Hunt, AKA Hunt, is back with ‘Undo’, the final single from her three part spirographic soundscape Empire. Having already clasped the attention of national admiration from triple j with her debut 2014 EP Hollow. Hunt has set out to create a more lush and layered tapestry of sound. After being posed with the question of where she is in life as an artist and person, Hunt was left bewildered, thus deciding to reflect on where she has been and where she anticipates to be in the future. Following on from previous singles ‘Destructive’ and ‘Thought I Could’, Hunt draws a close to her trilogy with an emotive track, yet rather than being a sombre affair it’s a melancholic smile on a tear stained check.
In Hunt’s own confession, it’s a song and a trilogy of faults we have all succumbed to and how this cavalcade of conquests and calamities are just a part of our ever-expanding story.
