Narc (Acoustic Version) by Hawk – Free Music Feature MP3
This weeks free feature is ‘Narc (Acoustic Version)’ by Hawk.
Have I told you that I love Hawk? I don’t think I have, but there it is, a declaration on the internet for all to see. They were one of the hugely talented bands to play Westfield’s Summer Sizzler with Discovery 2 so we met to chew the fat a little I came away with CD in hand (like a party bag). Since then I’ve been listening to the contrasting tracks of the band, from loud and rocky to acoustic and beautiful – I have found it hard to narrow down on a favourite. So, if you too like what you hear just head over to their Soundcloud to grab the additional two tracks this band are kindly giving away now!
London-based HAWK have been described as everything from alt-pop to dark folk. Julie, Matt, Chris, and Sam hail from various corners of the UK and Ireland. Their sound has been described by Subba Culture as a “fusion of ambience and power, fronted by a soaring, crackling vocal”.
Lead singer Julie Hawk who has been described as “a bit of the Bjork side of brilliant bonkers” (Artrocker), began collaborating with Matt Harris, as a solo project in 2012. After a year of garnering plaudits on the acoustic scene, the pair joined with Sam and Chris to form HAWK, adding new edge and expansion to their sound, while retaining the detail and delicacy of their acoustic roots. HAWK released their debut single ‘Take Off Your Suit’ in July 2013, to positive press. The Sound of Confusion described “the sharp, stammering beat and spiralling guitar lines” as ”inventive and classic all at once.” T
