HAWK release new track ‘Take It Away’!

Following the release of their last single ‘Mirror Maze’, Hawk have now shared their new track Take It Away, ahead of their 2017 EP release She Knows out on 17th March 2017 via Veta Records.

The track premiered on Dork and is available to stream now on Hawk’s Soundcloud page.

Take It Away was written as a reaction to singer Julie Hawk’s friend being followed home after a night out. Her friend was told that she “shouldn’t have been out on her own at that time” but Julie says that comments like that “miss the point and are the main cause of the problem” in that it’s not the fault of the person being followed but the man who takes away her freedom to walk back home on her own.

Previous single ‘Mirror Maze’ is about what society expects from us from a female perspective, which is touched upon again on a global sense in ‘Ghosts’ – we should break free from society’s standards and be comfortable in our own skin. Meanwhile, ‘Static’ shines a light on those in power who pay lip service but fail to insight real change.

She Knows covers a range of themes including inequality, exclusion and preconceptions and generalisations faced by different social groups every day. Hawk’s acute social awareness is a trait that the band hold dear but instead of unravelling these ideas into brash political punk songs, they convey their message with beauty and grace. Hawk are not a ‘political band’ but instead a group of friends using their creative talents to mirror the inequalities they witness in everyday life.

Hawk’s EP She Knows is out on 17th March 2016 via Veta Records.
