Today, our new music spotlight is on HAVVK
Location: Berlin / London
Line-up: Julie Hawk (vocals/bass), Matthew Harris (guitar/production/vocals), Sam Campbell (drums)
About: HAVVK create soaring grunge soundscapes, fronted by the bewitching vocal of Galway-born songwriter Julie Hawk. The band originally formed in London in 2014, and relocated to their second home in Berlin two summers ago. HAVVK initially evolved from Julie’s solo project which was produced by their guitarist Matt Harris. Wanting to break away from the singer-songwriter niche, they redeveloped as something with more atmosphere, punch, and political edge than before.
What Hidden Herd say: ‘Glass’s intriguing opening introduces the listener to a delicate instrumental build, coupled by the tender falsetto of Julie Hawk. In contrast to their previous tracks such as ‘Keeps Me Out’, ‘Glass’ shows an added layer of depth and intimacy.
