this song is great - a solid progression for the band and a clear standout amongst an already impressive collection of tracks

This new Hawks track is a straight killer. No fuss, just restless garage drone.

Pretty cool slacker indie. I love the verses but the chorus doesn't quite pack the punch I was expecting. But that's okay, the bridge brings it home!
