The Hawkeyes


The Hawkeyes-self titled released on Broad Horizon Records

This band seems a mix between The Georgia Satellites and AC/DC.
With more of the leaning towards the GS. Southern rock with a harder edge on the guitar than most bands. This four track ep has two excellent tracks, they are Double E, 7 & A Quarter.
Each of these tracks are some of the best rock and roll tracks you will hear from an independent band. These two tracks are only a taste of what could be. In a world where louder is not always better this band delivers rock in roll straight to your feet. These are songs you will sing along to, songs you will play your friends, songs that you will listen to in ten years and realize how well they have held up to the test of time. The ultimate compliment to any artist is to write songs that stand up to the test of time its self. If this genre’s suits your taste then I would be surprised if you do not like this rocking group.
Joe is the second track on the disc and follows the same pattern and it also has a good hook but has a harder AC/DCish guitar edge as does Junior’s Night Out. The short ep gives a glimpse of what the Hawkeyes could achieve. Two of the four songs are excellent and are worth the price of admission, however it would be nice to hear a full CD which is also a real test for most artist to deliver twelve or fourteen songs in one package. After hearing the Hawkeyes four track ep, It’s seems soon we will listening to a excellent rock and roll release if this ep is any indication of what they have in store.
