H. HAWKLINE+ YOUNGHUSBAND

H.Hawkline (Huw Evans) has announced details of the release ‘Engineers’, the latest track to be taken from his forthcoming album, I Romanticize which is released on Heavenly Recordings.

Released on Friday June 2nd 2017, I Romanticize (like its predecessor and Heavenly Records debut, 2015’s In The Pink Of Condition) was recorded at Samur Khouja’s Seahorse Sound studio in Los Angeles with all the lyrics written and then vocals recorded in Narberth in west Wales. “Some words, as with their meaning, are unavoidable – ‘love’, ‘goodbye’, ‘time’, ‘you’, – but you can at least try and dress them up in some new clothes.”

Co-produced by Samur, Huw and Cate Le Bon, who also forms part of the quartet who appear on the record along with Josiah Steinbrick – LA composer and producer – and Warpaint’s Stella Mozgawa. “They were the absolute best people for the job, and I also happen to be lucky enough to call them friends. Without their hands and ears the wet clay would have collapsed,” said Huw.

Having previously played with the likes of Foxygen, Gwenno and long-time cohort Cate le Bon, he has recently announced a run of shows with Devendra Banhart in June / July and a number of festival appearances over the summer.
