Frenzied two track single from Paul Hawkins & The Awkward Silences. Finally capturing the intensity of their live performance on tape...this is the sound of a band and label having abandoned all commercial and critical aspirations.

“Twisted, frustrated...This isn’t pretty, but it damn sure is charming.” – Bearded

"With his gravelly, Nick Cave vocal and links to the world of antifolk, we’re big fans of Paul Hawkins here at Clash HQ." - CLASH Music

“Underground legend...Doing something truly on their own and making the rules up as they go along."– Artrocker

“Clamouring for the position of best British band of the 21st Century – 5/5” – God Is In The TV

“A thoroughly unpleasant listen." – Drowned in Sound

“Paul Hawkins is the Preacher Man – 8/10.” – The Music Fix

“Rejoice in their individualism, their energy, their off-kilter rock n roll with intruiging lyrics and a captivating presence.” – Huw Stephens, BBC
