Hush by Hawk – Free Music Feature MP3

Dec 26, 2014 by

Hush by HAWK is our free music feature of the week! This is a powerful song that sounds like nothing else you’ve heard recently (unless you’ve been listening to HAWK of course). This band are producing music that is unique, interesting and really makes you listen. If you head over to their website you can check out the video for Hush as well.

HAWK are a London-based noir alt. rock four piece.¬†They have been described as everything from noir-rock to alternative-folk. Based in London, Julie, Matt, Chris, and Sam hail from various corners of the UK and Ireland. Their sound was described by Subba Cultcha as a “fusion of ambience and power” fronted by a “soaring, crackling vocal”. Irish-born lead singer Julie Hawk initially embarked on a solo folk career, and began collaborating with Matt in 2012. After a year on the acoustic circuit, the pair gained support from the likes of Steve Lamacq and Tom Robinson. The fledgling duo then joined Sam and Chris to form the band you hear now, adding a new abrasive edge to their sound while retaining the delicacy of their acoustic roots.

Hush was released 8th December, so see this as your final Christmas present to end the festive season. Happy holidays everyone!
