The Hawkins release "Jim & Kate," final single from upcoming album "Aftermath"
The Hawkins launch the single "Jim & Kate." Born and raised within a two-square-meter-big Swedish town back in March 2013, Albin, Johannes, Martin, and Mikael have together shared their musical journeys since they plucked their first chords. Their newest release offers an ambivalent mixture of dead seriousness and fun, combining upbeat, super melodic, and experimental garage rock with downhearted lyrics dealing with tattered relationships.
The Hawkins' lead vocalist and guitarist Johannes Carlsson comments on the single:
“‘Jim & Kate’ takes place in the aftermath of a shit hitting the fan. Over and over again. You’re once again standing in the rubble, trying to make sense of what just happened and grasping for pieces to supposedly glue together. Shock and denial mixed with has-tingly trying to fix things. The intro is kind of like that to play as well. It’s a bit like being half awake and thinking you’re late to work.”
Jim & Kate is the third and final single from The Hawkins upcoming, conceptual mini-album "Aftermath", on which each track tells a story connected to the destructive af-termath of past relationships. The 6 track mini-album will be released on The Sign Re-cords October 15 on LP, CD, and digital formats. ”Aftermath” can be pre-ordered now.
