'Third and finest outing for the beauty-and-the-beast pairing… Campbell's shimmering coos dapple Lanegan's rough voice like sunlight and the music has an old-fashioned charm.' Financial Times**** 'This album, the unlikely couple’s third, adds more strings to their countrified bow.' Daily Mail****
Following their earlier acclaimed albums - Ballad of the Broken Seas and Sunday At Devil Dirt – Isobel Campbell and Mark Lanegan return this summer with Hawk, their third album and most definitive artistic statement yet.
Campbell and Lanegan again complement each other beautifully, while continuing to mine the same rich seam of alt-country, folk, blues and jazz of their previous two release.
This time around Isobel has branched out a little, collaborating with kindred spirit Willy Mason on a couple of new tracks. Willy will also play in her band this evening, as well as opening up the show. 'The chemistry between the two is riveting… Campbell’s songs are simple, direct, gorgeous.' Sunday Times*****
