Hamish Hawk Shares New Single ‘Men Like Wire’

Tune in now...

Hamish Hawk has shared new single ‘Men Like Wire’.

The Edinburgh songwriter has constructed a new album, with ‘A Firmer Hand’ set to land on August 16th. Due to be released via So Recordings, new single ‘Men Like Wire’ connects different aspects of his work, from past to present.

Lyrically it taps back into Hamish Hawk’s excellent song ‘Bakerloo, Unbecoming’, a series of character studies that explores the masculine.

Taut musicality, the curve of the guitar lines ricochet against the vocal melodies, building into something fully three-dimensional. He comments…

In ‘Bakerloo, Unbecoming’, I wrote “essentially it comes down [again] to the limitless mysteries of other men”. ‘Men Like Wire’ is a deeper excavation of that idea. In short, it’s about men. Men I have and haven’t known, men I’ve seen, heard, loved and lost. Men I’ve been seated next to at weddings, bus stops and dinner parties, on trains, beds and park benches. They’re all in there, for better, for worse.

‘Men Like Wire’ comes with a new video, directed by Andrew Pearson – tune in now.
