HAWK are preparing for the New Year and the release of their 2015 EP 'Clock Hands' with this free single - 'Hush'. HAWK consists of Julie Hawk, Matthew Harris, Chris Handsley and Sam Campbell, coming together from across the UK. 'Clock Hands' is due to be released through Veta Records, with 'Hush' set to be released on 8th December 2014.
The music video for 'Hush' contains flashing images and strobe effects as the insanity of the lyrics to create something mesmerising and dark, hinting at the themes of pain, pleasure and insecurity. With lead singer Julie Hawk nervously looking off into the darkness around her as unseen faces flash in and out of visibility. Tranquillity only really come when she performs with the band, suggesting a comfort and healing power given to her by the music.
HAWK began in 2012, when Irish singer and guitar player, Julie, left her solo folk career behind to join guitarist Matt Harris to create an acoustic band. With the introduction of bassist Chris Handsley and drummer Sam Campbell a year later, the group added the alternative-rock edge to their group, while still paying homage to their folk roots.
'Hush' is available to download from HAWK's official website on 8th December, 2014.
