Dublin, County Dublin
“perfectly pitched, rabble-rousing angular poise” (Jim Carroll, The Irish Times)
“pop sensibilities of Duran Duran..custom made for major labels...nothing short of superb” (wearenoise)
Formed from the ashes of Dublin indie guitar crunchers The Looks, Hawklion roared onto the scene with sellout shows and critical acclaim. The Hawklion aesthetic that was first revealed in 2013 when the band released their debut EP Gold & Silver.
The EP1 and EP2 were both incredibly well received with UK airplay on both BBC Radio 1 and XFM, and love shown on seminal rock show Across the Line.
Now, having been almost chronically in the studio, Hawklion return to debut new material.
Boasting monstrous hooks and alongside subtle, soulful songs, the new music builds on what went before. While returning to massive guitar based songs, Hawklion have maintained the pop sensibilities that saw them receive such great reviews (Irish Times, Hotpress, wearenoise, Nialler9)
In February 2017 Hawklion returned to the live stage to perform a showcase celebrating the release of their latest single “I Got You”. The concert quickly sold out and saw the band preview many of the new songs that will form their debut album. The album, which is currently in pre-production, has a release date pencilled for autumn 2017.
“I Got You” is now available to download on itunes and stream on spotify, apple music, bandcamp and soundcloud.
