Listen to HAWK and other great artists on exclusive Spotify playlists.
Grunge-filled indie via London, Ireland and Berlin.
HAWK combine an abrasive edge with celestial vocals, to create a driving, expansive sound, with activism at its core.
The band have been compared to Warpaint and The Cranberries with hints of Slow Dive and Radiohead. Their music covers subjects like inequality, exclusion, gender-preconceptions and generalisations faced by different social groups every day. Their acute social awareness is a trait that the band hold dear conveying their message with beauty and grace, with triggering, dreamlike soundscapes to mirror the inequalities they witness in everyday life.
HAWK formed in London in 2014, where they formed their label, Veta Records, and relocated to Berlin in 2016.
Amongst the band’s supporters are Noisey, Stereogum, Clash, The Line of Best Fit and Amazing Radio, who have all commented on HAWK’s dynamic sound and compelling subject matters.
In 2017, they released their third EP, ‘She Knows’ (Veta Records) and their thunderous singles, 'Sin', 'Below', and 'Can't Explain'.
Their new single 'Keeps Me Out' is out now. "Five minutes of thick, velvety textures and clattering cymbals." - The Line of Best Fit
“…powerful…” – Dork
“...a dreamlike sound that conjures up ethereal imagery.” - Wonderland
“…ear-pleasing webs of noise with powerful political ideas.” - The Line of Best Fit
“…biting musicality…” – Clash
“…could be the best opening track to any rock release.” – Noizze
