The Hawk In Paris: new music from Music City

See also

It happens all the time in a city full of musicians: band members come and go, new bands are formed out of old ones. Or, in addition to already popular bands, musicians come together in different formations they deem “side projects.”

One such group, formed in 2009, is The Hawk In Paris. The group is made up of three writers and producers who have been friends for a decade, but hadn’t worked together recently: Dan Haseltine (Jars of Clay), Matthew Bronleewe (Selena Gomez), and Jeremy Bose (The Band Perry, Sugar + The Hi-Lows). “We had no agenda, and no plan other than to get in a room and write some pop songs,” said Bronleewe. They ended up finding inspiration from the world of electronica, and from 80’s synth music (Eurythmics, Depeche Mode).

The trio released their first EP in 2011, a 7 song set called His + Hers. This month, they’ll be releasing a full length album, entitled Freaks. The title track was released as a single on October 15, while the full album will be released independently on October 29. The album’s production was crowd-funded through the website Pledge Music.

You can check out a few new tracks on Soundcloud, or pre-order the twelve-track album from The Hawk In Paris’ website.
