HAWKS DO NOT SHARE
After a brief hiatus following the release of a final, definitive work by their previous band, longtime collaborators GL3 and Jeremy Wilkins rejoined forces in the Fall of 2013, hashing out a new musical identity composed of both familiar and unfamiliar themes, named Hawks Do Not Share.
Toward the end of recording their debut album, HDNS, they welcomed multi-instrumentalist Britt White into the fold. Described by the Portland Mercury as “lilting songs with depth and room to breathe,” HDNS received positive reviews in both national and local press. Jason Roark was in the audience when the trio played the Doug Fir Lounge in celebration of the album’s release and would soon become the band’s full-time guitarist. Now a foursome, they continued performing live in support of HDNS, while exploring new identities in the studio, culminating in 2016’s Polaris EP.
The band has devoted most of the intervening years to working in the studio. In the first days of March 2020, gathering right before widespread shutdowns due to the global health pandemic, the band reimagined and re-recorded the song Nightfall from the Polaris EP, and released it digitally as a standalone single they called Nightfall ’20.
Recently, the band perfected a long brewing collection of songs for their 2nd, full-length album, A Dream to Hold on To, which is out now on limited vinyl and digitally through No Movement Records.
“With a deep emotional resonance harkening to the sounds of The xx, MGMT, Tears For Fears, The The, and Angelo Badalamenti, the deceptively simple hook delves into a dangerous situation and making peace with a poor decision; the song is a soaring, yet minimalist reflection on centering one’s heart when the ground trembles under our feet.“Post Punk
“’Interiors’ is as if chillwave received an even more modern update for less nostalgic and more immediate times, and it’s the desperate wailing vocals that will draw you in from the first chorus until the last beat.“Big Takeover
“I’m not sure when I last discovered an Indie album that feels like a 10/10 and I can bravely state that this one is.“The Music Sanctum
