Hawks and Doves (from the album From a White Hotel available on Jullian Records)
The exact location of the building Hawks and Doves us to house their recent release, From a White Hotel, is not clear though the rock’n’roll that backs each story makes the men and women walking through the tales connected by bloodlines. Staged on city streets, there is grit in the words, bite in the guitars as From a White Hotel speaks of personal experience as Hawks and Doves own their mistakes in the title track, the journey led by a solid backbeat and billowing sonics. No punches were pulled in the telling of these tales as From a White Hotel gets a birdseye view from the passenger seat of a car ‘burning through the bible belt’ in “Bulletproof Hearts (for Laura Jane)”, rips off the rearview mirror and hits the highway for “Chasing the Sky”, and slogs across a molasses thick groove to describe “Lithium Blues”.
Hearts beating loud in defiant chests create the beat for “The Dangerous Ones”, Hawks and Doves taking a stand, the realization that ‘white boys with money make the whole world run’ the needed straw to take to the streets. Hawks and Doves have an endorsement from three-chords-and-the-truth, utilizing the gift to full benefit of the songs on From a White Hotel. A hesitant beat shuffles underneath the carnival story of “Geek Love” while From a White Hotel squeezes out keyboard breaths that circle “Lover’s Waltz”. Hawks and Doves put a little funk in the tour-stop strut of “Every Once in a While”, punch out a pulp fiction tale for “Get Low”, and tenderly offer “Clothes Off My Back” as a message of love.
