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.
