Hamish Hawk & The New Outfit’s debut album, From Zero To One, coming soon!
'When he plays, Hawk combines wild eyed surprise with an all knowing smile - not only does he looks startled at his own turn of phrase, his lyrics take on new meanings once you feel you're already in on the joke. It's a great trick.
And the tunes are GOOD.'
'If The Smiths, The Strokes and Siouxsie & The Banshees morphed into one, then low and behold, you would have the unstoppable sound of Hamish Hawk & The New Outfit.'
Pulling influence from early David
Bowie with his manicured yet frantic
delivery ... Perhaps it’s the plush suit but
there’s something of the David Byrne
about his sharp and ernest delivery. Every
vocal line feels like a nervous twitch that
simply has to be put out there like some
'gorgeous, erudite indie-pop'
