Reliably informed

Hartlepool’s DAWKS, which is ostensibly the project for singer-songwriter Luke Dawkins (who readers may be familiar with from previous band Leopard Rays), are in the happy habit of consistently making strident, infectious indie rock tunes, and Right Place/Wrong Time is the group’s third single, off the back of radio play and positive responses to their live presence.

While not reinventing the wheel, DAWKS embody a calm confidence belying their infancy as a group, and feed seamlessly into a canon of radio-friendly indie rock. One can expect that such songwriting chops will see them making rapid ascent, and their music would be perfect in the context of a festival set on a glorious summer day, for all of the neurosis of the lyrics. Certainly ones to watch for the future.
