One band. Four band members. Ten songs. Sometimes it’s just as easy as that.
There are many classic debut albums. Time will tell whether ”Ain’t Rock n Roll” will qualify as one of the chosen ones. Regardless, it remains an undisputed fact that it offers ten energetic songs that take the listener along for a high-speed ride that lasts just over half an hour.
The album starts off with a bang with ”Alco-Hole”, the shortest song, and barely touches the brakes before the, somewhat slower, epic ending with ”Will & Testament”. Along the ride you get another eight songs that all offer you the characteristic ”The Hawkins Sound”. Something unique, which few new bands manage to show off.
”Ain’t Rock n Roll” establishes The Hawkins as yet another name to add to the list of great Swedish rock bands.
The Hawkins releases their new album Ain´t Rock´n´Roll on Oct 6.
