They say all things, music, fashion and fads, eventually come full circle and more recently it’s been grunge’s turn to make a comeback. It might now be disguised behind a more emotional/alternative exterior, but like an old friend returning from their travels, the weathered lines deep in their forehead, their hands coarse and their dialect altered slightly, they somehow remain exactly the same. Leeds based, Hawk Eyes, are by no means an old friend of mine, in fact they’re completely new to me, but their latest release, ‘That’s What This Is’, feels like I should know them. It feels like I should get to know them, and this EP is exactly how I should start to do it.
