Arriving August 27th is the tenth studio album from the country/Americana band, I See Hawks In LA. Their new release titled “On Our Way” was recorded during the pandemic in the safest way possible, by sending drum tracks, vocals, guitar tracks and everything else through phones and using ProTools to bring all the music together. This recording was also a “life raft” for everyone in the band, who needed an outlet from the craziness of the lockdown and to be able to record new music was a saving grace for I See Hawks In LA.
The album begins with the swift acoustic strumming and violins of “Might’ve Been Me,” which starts things off on a positive note. The warming harmonies of “On My Way” feels like a warm blanket of comfort to help soothe you during these trouble times. There are a couple of songs (“Know Just What To Do” & “How You Gonna Know”) that showcase the depths of their performance, as I See Hawks In LA felt no restraints during this recording process to just let the music lead the direction of the album. The classic country feel of “Kentucky Jesus” will have you thinking that this band has been around much longer than two decades. I See Hawks In LA pick the tempo back up with the storied lyric of “Geronimo,” before finishing their new album with the country blues of “Radio Keeps Me On The Ground (Slight Return)” and the experimental, epic, eight-minute closer “How You Gonna Know?.” To find out more about I See Hawks In LA and their latest release “On Our Way,” please visit iseehawks.com.
