EXPECT the UNEXPECTED:
There is something to be said for exciting new music especially when it comes from fresh, unsigned bands. Atlanta's Fishhawk is stirring the creative pot and "fusion" is the word of the day. FH's debut CD is a new release merging several music styles (rock, electronica, rap, slow beats, hip-hop and soul.) This experiment in style is served up with beat-punctuated tracks, stirred with strong vocals and plenty of pop hooks. Right now the band doesn't have a drummer or a bass player - using computer and machine effects to round out their sound. (That reminds us a lot of early Fujiya & Miyagi...and based on how things have turned out for them, that's a very favorable comparison!)
We really like the level of experimentation on this album. RSL predicts very good things if Fishhawk keeps this up! And why not? This is a band that is trying to find their own patented sound and is succeeding at making that decision very difficult for them. We wish them all the luck in the world! We will be watching and listening.
