The Nighthawk Experience (NHE) is a brand new animated musical journey which will take you on an adventure with it’s hard hitting story and music. The NHE’s musical genre falls under numerous genre types including Alternative Rock, hard rock, Pop & Indie. The story of the NHE follows two different character’s named Kage and Yume. Kage is a 17 year old boy who feels nihilistic about the world and is trying to find meaning and purpose. Yume is a 17 years old girl, who has had her life laid out for her by everyone around her but then it gets turned upside down and now she needs to make sense of it.
The Nighthawk Experience’s debut single ‘Current Lies’ has just been released on YouTube and on online music streaming services such as Spotify, Apple music and Deezer. The debut single has been compared to being a ‘post rock’ type sound and similar to bands like Jakob and even Shihad.
The first single/episode of the NHE has already received a fantastic write up from the renowned New Zealand music review website muzic.net.nz who gave the song a four out of five stars. They said “What I find fascinating about this song, is that it really only consists of two major sections and is completed by a brooding outro. The delicate opening provides the listener with a lush, acoustic guitar-driven soundscape which builds towards the sensational second section. I love the subtle textures, like the electric guitar feedback, that have gone into this intro, adding further depth to the sound.The next section is heavy and wide, punctuated by gorgeous guitar tones and powerful, rich vocals which are integrated into the band. It takes repeated listens to grab the lyric story, which is hardly a problem because it sounds so good. The whole piece is completed by an ominous outro which hints at the next, perhaps darker chapter of the Nighthawk Experience story. At around two minutes in length, this piece won’t demand too much of your time and is perfect for the Spotify algorithms. The animated video adds another dimension to the project. It is unusual and captivating – I enjoyed the family of ducks in particular. The video changes tone with the music in the outro, which indicates the as yet unreleased next chapter of the story. I’m certainly looking forward to it. Mysteriously packaged, expertly executed, tantalisingly short yet absolutely comprehensive. If this first offering from the Nighthawk Experience is what we can expect from the whole project, then the artist has this reviewer’s attention”.
The Nighthawk Experience has a growing fan base with 1155 fans on it’s Facebook page after only being on social media for just over a month month and the NHE is growing it’s other social channels considerably. 2020 and 2021 are looking to be two massive years for The Nighthawk Experience as two seasons/two E.Ps are in the works of being released with 10 animated videos.
