Hawks of Alba

Hawks of Alba

 Adelaide, South Australia, AUS

Hawks of Alba have been described as “Heartbreak High narrated by The Breeders”, with “robot precision” and “chipmunk cuteness”.


Hawks of Alba were thrust into the music world by Triple J before they had played a gig together. “Look What You’ve Become” received airplay on Triple J and the band went on to win a spot on the Adelaide 2010 Big Day Out (Hannah’s third ever gig.)

Hawks of Alba have released their debut EP "Dear Punk Rock, Sorry I said all those nasty things about you" in September 2011.

Songs from the EP have already been well received with "Cut You Out", the leading single, receiving airplay on Triple J and community radio stations around Australia; and "Over Before it Ended" featuring on the ABC2 series "twentysomething" (airing September 6th 2011).

Hawks have been described as "Heart Break High narrated by the Breeders", with every song a love/hate letter of relationship breakdowns. "Dear Punk Rock,.." was nearly a year in the making with the band recording the songs themselves and sending it away to be finished by their heroes - mixed by Larry Crane (Elliott Smith, Sleater-Kinney) and mastered by Bob Weston (of Shellac).
