Blue-Eyed Hawk – Under the Moon
Taking its name from a line in W.B. Yeats’s poem Under the Moon, London-based band Blue-Eyed Hawk brings together four of the UK’s most lauded young performer/composers: vocalist Lauren Kinsella, trumpeter Laura Jurd, guitarist Alex Roth and drummer Corrie Dick. Traversing art-rock, jazz, minimalist and electronic soundworlds, Blue-Eyed Hawk’s debut album, titled after the same poem and co-produced by Polar Bear’s Tom Herbert, has been hailed as “one of the most thoughtful and imaginative albums of the year” (musicOMH), while their open-eared approach to song-writing has been described as “gloriously original” (The Jazz Mann),“powerfully emotive” (All AboutJazz) and “utterly distinctive” (London Jazz News).Following packed-out London performances at Kings Place, the Barbican and the Royal Albert Hall’s Elgar Room, Blue-Eyed continue their 2014 UK album launch tour.
