Started in the small town of Limavady and relocated to Belfast, Like A Hawk have become one of the go-to live acts on the Northern Ireland rock scene. Formed by brothers Archie and Ryan, their debut EP, “Release The Hawk”, was released on December 4th 2020. The self released 5 track EP captures their unique blend of fun ‘Norn Iron’ rock to the world. The guys from Like A Hawk spoke to The Jumble about the EP.
Recorded, mixed and mastered in drummer Ryan’s living room over the past few months, “Release The Hawk” is the band’s first official EP release, featuring singles “Wake Me Up” and “My Disgrace“. A few broken hearts and a few hundred cans later, Like A Hawk have put together this EP to showcase their unique style which has made them a staple of the live scene in Belfast and around the country.
“These songs have been around for a while in the Like A Hawk camp, and we’ve finally managed to get them together for our first official release. The budget and time constraints were a real challenge, and also the fact that we barely knew what we were doing! But we managed to get it together and get this out there. We can’t wait to get out and play these songs live once again, when we’re all allowed back together, and we hope you enjoy Release The Hawk. We’ve already started the recording process for the next release! Thank you for your support, and hang in there everyone. Rock & Roll will rise again!”
