I Romanticize
Artist
H. Hawkline
Label
Heavenly Recordings
Catalogue Number
HVNLP138DIG
Release Date
June 2, 2017

Available on standard black vinyl.

'I Romanticize' (like its predecessor and Heavenly Recordings debut, 2015’s In The Pink Of Condition) was recorded at Samur Khouja’s Seahorse Sound studio in Los Angeles with all the lyrics written and then vocals recorded in Narberth in west Wales. “Some words, as with their meaning, are unavoidable - ‘love’, ‘goodbye’, ‘time', 'you', – but you can at least try and dress them up in some new clothes.”

Here, too, are wobbly psych guitars, punchy powerpop earworms and lyrics which observe the world through a fragmented lens yet synths and pianos are much more prominent than on any previous H Hawkline release (he released his debut A Cup Of Salt in 2010 and followed that the following year with The Strange Uses Of Ox Gall). This is exciting, uncharted territory for H Hawkline, who says: “To my ears it’s pretty accessible pop music, but maybe there’s something wrong with my ears.”
