HAWK release new single ‘Sin’!

HAWK are back with another truly majestic release, combining an abrasive edge with celestial vocals and activism at its core. Their new single Sin is out now via Veta Records and is available to buy on iTunes and stream on Spotify.

The audio for the single premiered exclusively on The Line Of Best Fit and is available to stream on Soundcloud now.

Sin addresses the need to embrace female sexuality and autonomy, instead of demonising it or ignoring it full stop. The track is propelled forwards by front woman Julie Hawk’s poignant, crystal-clear vocals and twinkling hooks, oozing a sweeping grandeur throughout. Filled with an empowering grace, Sin asserts that we should be proud of being sexual and recognise the power of consent. It’s about stepping out of an age old framework that women should be ashamed of promiscuity or expressing self-love. Julie explains “it’s shouting about embracing our feelings, our cravings, our pasts, and even our mistakes, as we define them. We wear them on our skin and let them empower us as women”.

HAWK originally formed in London in 2014 to hone their unique style of grunge-filled indie, before relocating to Berlin in 2016 where they now produce all music themselves. They have also recently started working with Rocky O’Reilly (And So I Watch You From Afar) to help develop their post-rock sound.

Since the release of critically acclaimed singles such as Take It Away, Mirror Maze and Once Told, HAWK have received support from Noisey, Stereogum, Wonderland, DIY and The Line Of Best Fit to name but a few. Their music covers a range of topics including inequality, gender-preconceptions, and generalisations faced by different social groups whilst still managing to exude a dreamy, haunting elegance with each offering.

Sin is out now via Veta Records and is available to buy on iTunes and stream via Spotify.
