The Hawk In Paris began when the three friends reunited after nearly a decade. “It was an experiment. We didn’t know what we’d write about. We just wanted it to be inspiring,” said Matt Bronleewe, one third of the trio that includes Jeremy Bose and Dan Haseltine. HIS+HERS, the first EP from The Hawk In Paris, lets listeners dive into the melancholy of relationships. “I grew up listening to Depeche Mode, New Order and The Cure. They found a way to weave darker ideas about love with pop melodies,” said Haseltine. The Hawk In Paris draws from many influences, including electronic pioneers like Kraftwerk and synth-innovators like NIN. Older influences are balanced by new artists like Trentemoller and Friendly Fires. “In our memory, the 80’s and early 90’s were about massive drums and expansive synth textures. But when we referenced that music, we found that we were creating something new,” said Bose. The first EP is just the beginning. A full length LP will follow in early 2012
