Hawk Eyes 'That's What This Is' (EP stream)
Published Jun 28, 2013Hawk Eyes have been getting some attention in Britain, and they're looking to break into Canada when their That's What This Is EP is issued in our country on July 2 via New Damage Records. The digital release is available to stream now on Exclaim.ca.
This four-song EP is the follow-up to their 2012 sophomore album Ideas. Opener "That's What This Is" opens the albums with pummelling hard-rock riffs, thundering drums and English-inflected shouts. The rest of the short collection largely follows in suit, with "Never Never, Just Not Now" venturing into more melodic alt-rock territory and "Cheap" built around skulking syncopations that give way to monster riffs and cowbell hits.
