A Hawk and A Hacksaw - Délivrance

A Hawk and A Hacksaw, a baroque/folk-pop band from New Mexico formed by former Neutral Milk Hotel's drummer Jeremy Barnes and violinist Heather Trost. The Leaf Label signing artist is set to unveiled a new album titled Délivrance, out on May 16.

Délivrance encompasses sounds from a vast geographical region, and reflects particularly colourful exchanges Jeremy and Heather had during their Budapest stint.

“We like to think of music as a sort of borderless artform,” says Heather. “If anything I am trying to learn to not have any walls around myself, musically or otherwise. Travelling through Transylvania had a huge affect on me. The musicians we met had such a huge wealth of knowledge, about not only the music of their own and nearby regions, but textiles, artwork and pottery. It was very humbling to meet such open and warm people.”
