The English alt-rock quartet Hawk, release the EP She Knows on the 17th of March.
From the forthcoming release is Take It Away.
The ethereal voice of Julie Hawk accompanied by the condensed and pressurised bass by Chris Handsley, from which it emerges, is the signature sound of Hawk. Glittering guitar combinations by Julie and Matthew Harris with a tautly leashed percussion provided by Sam Campbell serve the contrasting palette that affords the intrigue of the compositions.
The context of the music is on the darker elements of life, not seeking to wallow in them, rather to offer a challenge to what are becoming social mores, with Take It Away arguing against a growing societal acceptance that women should be afraid to go out at night and if they do, it is their own fault if they are abused.

The English psychedelic rock quintet PSYBLINGS found some Studio time to record a few tracks.
Currently on a short tour in England – prior to heading off PSYBLINGS made available one of the new songs – Become A Pattern.
A just over three minutes track of curling wisps of guitars threading with the echoey vocal, which emerge from a drum kit that revolves around the steel with the bass keeping all the elements in line.
Word has not arrived yet as to whether the collection of recordings will be surfacing as an EP, LP or individual singles – as I have news I will keep you appraised.

The English electro-indie outfit New Arcades revealed a new track within the past few hours.
New Arcades – From The Dark
I often discover music that is perfectly suited to a moment – though perhaps there is some inevitability in that as I am almost always writing music reviews – however – a weekend with a new dance-track – what more does life require?
New Arcades over the years have always kept their music light to the touch, yet with sufficient gravitas to capture attention and From The Dark, set for official release on the 3rd of February, with its feathering beat and drifting vocal is no exception. They never aim to start a revolution, it is, evolution of a party mood which is more their speciality as they tempt the conversations to stop and the dancing to begin.

The English alt-folk creator Callum Pitt will be releasing the single You’d Better Sell It While You Can on the 24th of February.
A quietly paced piece – You’d Better Sell It While You Can – evolves through its approaching four and a half minutes duration from honkey-tonk piano to a melodious fusion of wallowing guitar and the listeners find themselves swaying along with the revolving combinations that unfurl themselves around the ears, as the textured voice, which will either make for instant dislike or interest, flows through the composition.
A tad more user friendly than much of the music featured on the site, I nonetheless suggest that spending time with Callum Pitt won’t be time you will feel regretful utilising.
