Hear This: HAWK - Keeps Me Out

RATE THIS ARTICLE

Share This Article:

Fronted by Julie Hawk, the London-based shoegaze trio HAWK's latest single 'Keeps Me Out' transcends time and space, painting an atmospheric throwback to indie-genres past. 

 

Swirling hooks, crystal vocals, and distortion fuelled, unconventional chord changes push 'Keep Me Out' into new territories within the shoegaze genre. Frontwoman Julie has cited a 'real urge to go full shoegaze' on this track after long drives listening to My Bloody Valentine's Loveless and Slowdive's Souvlaki; 'Keep Me Out' fully encapsulates this urge with 90s-tinged flair. 

HAWK traverses a soundscape of melancholic verses where haunting uplifting choruses counteract this, seeping with emotions of longing, desperation and an innate beauty. 

'Keeps Me Out' is out now via Veta Records.
