Hawk Eyes - Ideas Cover

Chickenwho?

Arriving hot on the heels of December’s ‘Mindhammers’ EP, ‘Ideas’ sees Hawk Eyes pursuing their recently revised, markedly less chaotic direction with impressive dedication, rendering the ghost of Chickenhawk an increasingly distant memory. Hypnotically pulverising riffs, rolling grooves and wailing melodies are the order of the day, although the hooks necessary to lodge these newly streamlined alt-rock barnstormers in the listener’s memory are perhaps yet to materialise. As muscular and crushingly executed as ever, ‘Ideas’ remains an aptly-titled confirmation that Hawk Eyes are setting their sights on longevity in lieu of pure aural decimation, even if their best is undoubtedly still to come.
