Product Description


technical comment

  • Blue-Eyed Hawk is the co-operative London based quartet that brings together vocalist Lauren Kinsella, trumpeter Laura Jurd, guitarist Alex Roth and drummer Corrie Dick. Taking its name from a line in W.B. Yeats’s poem Under the Moon, their debut album is the sum of a colloborative process that bursts with the youthful energy, vision and integrity of all four members. The result is music that is emotive, lyrical, dark, inspiring and at times unexpected. but most of all it is an honest depiction of the perceptions voiced through four highly talented and engaging performers.

    Integrating a wide open improv sensibility in to its melodic and richly textured original material, Blue-Eyed Hawk’s music dips into a diverse and eclectic world of rock, jazz, minimalism and electronic soundworlds. With the writing pooled between all four members of the band, Under the Moon is very much a communal effort of craftmanship and expression. Using lyrics by E.Y Harburh, W.B Yeats, Armand Silvestre and Seamus Heaney as a source of inspiration, this isn’t a jazz album nor a art-rock album but a refreshing genre defying and boundless approach to music making at its most creative and original.
