“South London rap adventurists Hawk House are pleased to announce details of their second EP – ‘A Handshake To The Brain’ – on the 23rd June.
Hawk House is an eclectic trio consisting of brother Sam and Eman and their mutual friend Demae whose husky, soul-soaked vocals matched her similar taste in music. Together, their home-cooked hip-hop collaboration began in a South-London kitchen and has since seen them emerge as one of the UK’s most exciting sounds. Last year they produced a boundary-bursting sound of the summer mixtape – ‘A Little More Elbow Room’ – which had everyone from Mac Miller and Ghostpoet to Wretch 32 and Grammy-winning pioneer Jill Scott championing the trio.
New EP ‘A Handshake For The Brain’ is a phantasmagoric fever dream of Golden-era boom-bap, New Orleans jazz, interstellar electronic rushes and introspective rhythms, roughed in grit and deadpan humour. Overall, it’s an intrepid and richly listenable hip-hop trip, which features production rising beatmakers and is threaded with stories about ‘people we know whose stories everyone living in places like the ones we grew up are familiar with’.”
