Veta Records presents: HAWK and Heavy Heart
THIS SHOW IS SOLD OUT!
Veta Records proudly presents a killer double act of London indie in the beloved basement of Servant Jazz Quarters.
HAWK are an indie band based in London. Julie, Matt, Chris, and Sam hail from the west of Ireland and the UK. Their sound is described by The Line of Best Fit as “simply sublime – sharp post-punk riffs akin to Warpaint’s clearer moments or Savages’ smoggier ones.”
Galway-born singer Julie Hawk, began collaborating with Matt Harris in 2013. After a year on the acoustic scene, they teamed with Sam and Chris to form HAWK. Over three EPs the band have constantly added to their abrasive edge teaming this with 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 combine post-punk and folk in a spine-tingling brew that’ll take potshots at your emotional wellbeing” – The Line of Best Fit
Heavy Heart are four boys and a girl from southeast London, formed in 2014. The band recently played shows in London, Barcelona and New York and are releasing a new song a month in 2016.
“Amplified dream pop colored with angelic vocals – time to fly away…” – Turn Up The Volume
