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 2018 writing songs, crafting their sound and gigging across the country – including a performance at KOKO, Camden.
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. Determined to capture the essence of their live sound in the studio, they caught the attention of renowned producer Larry Hibbitt (Hundred Reasons, Marmozets,Nothing But Thieves), to bring the best out of the band’s heavy sound and to produce their infectious debut single:
HAWXX have released 3 singles, all receiving a very positive response from press and radio. Their latest two singles “The Lie” and “You’re No God” have been played on Tom Robinsons BBC Mixtape on BBC 6 Music, BBC Introducing and Planet Rock Radio.
