It must be pure bad luck that I hadn’t come across Canadian singer-songwriter Hawksley Workman before. The two time Juno winner has been around the music business for coming up two decades and is often placed into the same discussion as Sarah Slean, whom I am a huge fan of. His new single ‘Dwindling Beauty (lets Fake our Deaths Together)’ is a mixture of dark and moody piano-rock choruses and anthemic pop-rock choruses. Hawksley Workman has a distinctive voice that sounds urgent and world-weary at the same time. It plays beautifully into the subject matter of the world giving us a bit of a hint – naff off my planet!
‘Dwindling Beauty’ is easily one of the most pub-like ways to give up on life so that’s why it is great to hear. Although it encapsulates a lot of peoples feelings of 2020, it was written last year. Enjoy the single below – it is out now. While there is no news of an EP or LP – for newbies like me, there is a huge back catalogue to get stuck into!
