H.Hawkline (Huw Evans) releases his new album I Romanticize on Heavenly Recordings. I Romanticize (like its predecessor and Heavenly Records 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. Co-produced by Samur, Huw and Cate Le Bon, who also forms part of the quartet who appear on the record along with Josiah Steinbrick - LA composer and producer - and Warpaint’s Stella Mozgawa. In many ways I Romanticize exudes warmth and positive vibes and that falling-cat ‘what, me worry?’ nonchalance and anyone who latched on to In The Pink Of Condition will have their wait for a follow-up rewarded. 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.”
