Grunge-filled indie via London, Ireland, and Berlin. With activism at its core, HAWK combine an abrasive edge with celestial vocals, to create a driving, expansive sound.
HAWK have been compared to Warpaint and The Cranberries with hints of Slow Dive and Radiohead. Their lyrics cover 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 without unravelling these ideas into brash political punk songs, they convey their message with beauty and grace, with triggering, dreamlike soundscapes to mirror the inequalities they witness in everyday life.
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.

“…biting musicality…” – Clash
“…could be the best opening track to any rock release.” – Noizze
