HAWXX are Anna, Hannah, Jessica and Iman. Originally hailing from Greece, Wales, England and Bahrain, they founded the band in Wandsworth, South London in 2018. Bonding over funny voices, feminism, booze, knitting, metal and rock music, the band of sisters spent their first year as a band releasing 4 singles, building a healthy fan base and gigging all over the country, including gigs at KOKO Camden and Scala .
Their first two singles saw a collaboration with producer Larry Hibbitt (Hundred Reasons, Marmozets, Dinosaur Pileup) and the following two with Paul Matthews (I Am Giant). They all received a very positive response from press and radio, including Tom Robinsons BBC Mixtape on BBC 6 Music, BBC Introducing and Planet Rock Radio. In December 2019 HAWXX were awarded with the Women Make Music Grant by PRS and were given the opportunity to record their debut EP ‘Deadlands’ with Larry Hibbitt. ‘Deadlands’ is #fundedbyPRS.
Named after the bird of prey, with the double XX symbolising the double XX female chromosome, HAWXX are proud to shake-up the male-dominated rock scene with a fresh sound and energy. Having all worked as session musicians, their aptitude and command of their instruments creates a power-house on stage. Their magnetic energy and bold, fearless performances have captivated audiences and created a healthy fanbase in a short space of time.
HAWXX make metal-laced heavy rock, spanning from the deeply personal to the outwardly political, including songs about getting instantly fired from your job, giving the finger to institutionalised religion and how love is a mighty bitch.
