Edinburgh’s Hamish Hawk has released new single ‘Angel Numbers‘ the first new material since 2021’s critically acclaimed debut album Heavy Elevator. His imaginative view of the world and our, at times ridiculous, behaviour within it continue to provide the fodder for songs which sit in a genre all of their own.

Hamish had the following to say about the themes behind the single:
“‘Angel Numbers’ is an ode to the life less traditional. It takes a look at the sacrifices we all make in order to feel we belong. It’s a song that asks questions of accepted wisdom; it looks for get-out clauses in mortgage contracts and pokes holes in wedding dresses. It lives in the twists and turns in the out of the ordinary. If there’s no blueprint for any of this stuff, how are we supposed to know we’re doing it right? Are we all just kids in suits?” 

Hamish has also released a video for ‘Angel Numbers‘ which was produced along with his live guitarist and co-writer Andrew Pearson. The monochrome visuals are striking and there are religious themes at play, with demons squaring up (and sizing up) to Hamish.

“There’ll be angel numbers, stitches in your wedding dress”
“Who’s game for a game of heaven and hell? Jesus and the jezebel?”

Andrew expands on the ideas behind the video:
“With the video for ‘Angel Numbers’ I wanted to capture these two ideas: the biblical and the material. So we have angels and demons, heaven and hell, Jesus and the Jezebel represented by cheap nylon sheets and overly rough seamstresses. It’s a bit Phantom Thread meets Twin Peaks, Project Catwalk meets Ingmar Bergman but I hope it picks up the metaphorical and literal threads in the song as well as emphasising it’s strange, jerky rhythms.”
