H. Hawkline enchants on jangly psych-pop number "Engineers"

10 April 2017, 10:00 | Written by Laurence Day

H. Hawkline is debuting new single "Engineers", his latest preview of upcoming album I Romanticize.

"Engineers" links up with "My Mine" and "Last Thing On Your Mind" to preview the full-length follow up to 2015's In The Pink Of Condition.

Speaking about the new track, Hawkline (aka Huw Evans) says: "Cyndi Lauper was playing on the radio, everything was in our out, I heard a journalist read a Martina Navratilova quote as the song ended: 'The difference between involvement and commitment is like ham and eggs. The chicken is involved; the pig is committed.' I wrote it all down in a pad, we're all chickens, the pigs are having at it and everyone's fallen out of love."

With fluttering guitars and chiming vocals, "Engineers" is a pristine piece of psych that tugs at your hips and seeps into your brain. It's gorgeously jangly and pockmarked with Hawkline's signature quirks - it's another enticing piece of his next chapter.

Hawkline has lots of UK and European shows planned for the summer, including support dates with Devendra Banhart and slots at End Of The Road and The Great Escape. Find out more.
