This dark and lovely track by Irish group, HAWK explores Ireland’s ancient and archaic views regarding pregnancy and abortion. About the track the band says they want to shed light on Ireland’s:
“archaic mindsets and processes which systemically lets down women, especially those in more vulnerable circumstances”.
Despite the weight of the subject matter, “Once Told” is a blackened but beautiful song. Lead singer Julie Hawk’s vocals float above potent drums (Sam Campbell) and striking guitar (Matthew Harris) and bass (Chris Handsley).
“Once Told” will be released February 19th of 2016 via Veta Records.
