  • Hamish Hawk Releases New Song “Men Like Wire”

  • Scottish singer-songwriter Hamish Hawk released the third single called “Men Like Wire” from his upcoming third studio album “A Firmer Hand” on July 8, 2024, “Nancy Dearest” and “Big Cat Tattoos”.

    The new album is set to be released on August 16, 2024 via So Recordings.
    The song is paired to a music video directed by Andrew Pearson, the guitarist in his live band and co-songwriter.

    Hamish Hawk said of the song, “In 'Bakerloo, Unbecoming', I wrote “essentially it comes down [again] to the limitless mysteries of other men”. 'Men Like Wire' is a deeper excavation of that idea. In short, it's about men. Men I have and haven't known, men I've seen, heard, loved and lost. Men I've been seated next to at weddings, bus stops and dinner parties, on trains, beds and park benches. They're all in there, for better, for worse.”
  • The new album is the follow-up to the 2023 album “Angel Numbers”.
    The album comprises a 12-track and explores his interactions with men: friends, lovers, family and colleagues..

    Hamish Hawk said of the album, “Writing this album, I opened up my closet, and a skeleton came out. The thing that links all of the songs is a sense of the unsaid, whether out of guilt, shame, repression, embarrassment, coyness, whatever it might have been. I realized: I am going to say these things, and not all of them are going to make me look good. The album made so many demands, and I just gave myself over to it.”

  • He continued, “Once I'd given myself over to the idea, I thought, I have to stick to this. I can't hide anything from it. I can't clean it all up for consumption. It felt uncomfortable for me – and that's exactly how it should feel. That's a really strong position.”

    He added, “This is the body of the record. The fact that it makes me nervous tells me it was the right thing to do. It's a bit of a coming of age record.”
