“HAWK are an indie band based in Berlin. Hailing from the west of Ireland and the UK, the band formed in London, releasing three EPs before moving to Berlin in 2016. Described by The Line of Best Fit as “simply sublime – sharp post-punk riffs akin to Warpaint’s clearer moments or Savages’ smoggier ones”, the band have constantly added to their abrasive edge, teaming this with Julie Hawk’s celestial vocals to create a driving, expansive sound. Their music has ‘activism at its heart’, with their most recent releases singing out about marriage equality, abortion laws, and attitudes towards the female body. HAWK will release the EP ‘She Knows’ on 17th March 2017 via Veta Records.“
„As soon as Bikini Jesus meets, the dreadful Berlin weather turns into bright sunshine. Little is known about how exactly this works, but it seems to require a certain ritual involving reverb-drenched guitars, hypnotic bass lines, twisted drum beats and bittersweet vocals. Despite a lack of scientific evidence, Bikini Jesus continue to celebrate their climate-change voodoo in front of selected audiences.”
