HAWK – ‘Seasick Summer’

HAWK – ‘Seasick Summer’


HAWK are a band fronted by Galway lady Julie Hawk, who are now based in London. The band began in 2012 when Julie started working with Matt Harris before Chris Handsley and Sam Campbell rounded out the band.

It’s Hawk’s vocals that are the main draw here. The band’s debut single ‘Take Off Your Suit’ showcased Hawk’s squeaky timbre and range set to a relatively forgettable musical backing. ‘Seasick Summer’, the lead track from their upcoming The Sum of All Things EP fares better, it has that histrionic voice at its centre and is a free download.

There’s an acoustic cover of Tears For Fears’ Head Over Heels too:

The band are touring Ireland next week:

Live Irish March dates

Saturday 1st – Cyprus Avenue, Cork
Tuesday 4th – Dolans – Limerick
Wednesday 5th – Flirt FM session, Galway
Thursday 6th – Roisin Dubh – Galway
Friday 7th – Homebeat – Dublin
