This trio have the unique ability to combine UK and US hip hop and express classical and contemporary hip hop vibes. Similar to the infamous hip-hop band "A Tribe Called Quest". 
There ability to maintain powerful lyrics whilst addressing current topical issues is impressive. Emerging with the growing UK spoken word scene along side upcoming artist such as George the poet and Suli Breaks, Hawk house differ in that they combine powerful lyrics with neo-classic hip-hop instrumentals.
There first EP "A little more elbow room" was solid, evidently showing the characteristics of the three-piece group. However it was also clear that even though the group is in it's foundation stages it has already found it's "true sound", which is very rare in modern artists.
There signing to Virgin EMI has been positive. Unlike many artists, the signing to a top record label hasn't changed there uniqueness of which is the reason they were signed in the first place.
 This is evident through there brand new E.P "A Handshake To the Brain", which is modestly priced at £3.99 (iTunes). The E.P is one similar to Ed Sheeran's first album "+", in that by just listening the first few tracks you can already tell the band has a bright and prosperous future.  
This is there first single off the new E.P Chill Pill
           "A Bright Future awaits"
