The Alt Root SONG OF THE WEEK June 19, 2018:
I See Hawks in LA – “My Parka Saved Me”
The life of a band many times mirrors the audience, and as I See Hawks in LA get set for a new album release, Live and Never Learn coming on June 29, 2018, they face a band existence along with human hurdles such as confrontations with mortality, life choices, and the slow leakage of youthful possibility. I See Hawks in LA released their self-titled debut in 2001. The Hawks didn’t get rich, they didn’t get famous, and yet they’re still here, perhaps benefitting artistically from the rocky passage.
Drummer Victoria Jacobs in on board for Live and Never Learn, submitting her her tale “My Parka Saved Me,” recounting her real life head-on collision as a teenager on a winter afternoon by Lake Michigan as I See Hawks in LA provides Doo-Wop vocals as a Hammond B3 organ comforts the story.
