South West London based musician Joe Hawkes has today released his second full-length album, Gratitude With Attitude!
The exciting new release follows last year's well-received EP In The Ashes of the Scalded Earth...
Joe Hawkes is a solo artist who takes inspiration from the likes of Metronomy, Vampire Weekend and Self Esteem. Gratitude With Attitude was recorded mostly in his flat during lockdown and brings a more inward looking approach when compared to his previous work...
With its tongue-in-cheek 'self help' style title, this album tackles and puts forward the idea of learning to accept and appreciate what you have, and the possibility of being compassionate without being a pushover.
The latest single from the album is titled Sun Goes Down, and was released on the 29th of May. It offers a refreshingly upbeat tone, packed with punchy, energetic rhythms and topped with warm the melodies of Hawkes' vocal performance. You can check it out below:
Gratitude With Attitude is available now to download and stream online.
