HAMISH HAWK RELEASES NEW TRACK

Published:

Edinburgh’s Hamish Hawk returned in April with the welcome news that a new album “A Firmer Hand” is to land August 16th on So Recordings.

Following the BBC 6 Music playlisted “Big Cat Tattoos”, a rapturously-received solo tour with Villagers and its follow-up “Nancy Dearest” in June, today Hamish shares a third track from the album in the form of the robust and anthemic “Men Like Wire”.

Hamish had the following to say about the latest song to land from “A Firmer Hand”:

“In “Bakerloo, Unbecoming”, I wrote “essentially it comes down [again] to the limitless mysteries of other men”. “Men Like Wire” is a deeper excavation of that idea. In short, it’s about men. Men I have and haven’t known, men I’ve seen, heard, loved and lost. Men I’ve been seated next to at weddings, bus stops and dinner parties, on trains, beds and park benches. They’re all in there, for better, for worse.”

The song is paired to a video directed by Andrew Pearson, the guitarist in Hamish’s live band and co-songwriter. Containing all manner of besuited men, some like wire, some arguably less so, it’s a tailor-fitted companion to the ruminations of the song itself.
