Murder Folk seems to be all the rage right now, and it doesn’t come much more ominously captivating than New York artist Colman’s recently released single “Hawks”.
Any fans of Amigo the Devil are sure to appreciate the ingenuity which Colman has brought to the genre with their tribally organic acoustic percussion and deeply reverberant acoustic guitar tones which create the perfect platform for their deep Americana Folk vocals.
Hawks consistently switches from swampy blues to striking guitar progressions which carry the same chilling temperature as Post Punk. The progressive nature of the single makes it all too easy to remain transfixed by the inventive melodies from the first note to the last.
It’s tracks like Hawks which make us stoked to hear of any new release from Colman. We’re fairly sure that anyone with a penchant for Alt Americana Folk will feel the same once Colman is firmly planted on their radar.
