TODAY! Video for Hawksley’s new single “Don’t Take Yourself Away (Instant Nostalgia)” has just premiered on Exclaim.ca !! This is the first single off of Hawksley’s upcoming record, Old Cheetah.
Hawksley Workman gets all nineteen hundred and eighties with a new video for “Don’t Take Yourself Away (Instant Nostalgia),” the first single from the forthcoming album Old Cheetah, coming June 2, 2015 on Six Shooter Records. Directed by Ken Cunningham, the video captures a type of melancholy and brooding gothic angst that is, weirdly, found in both Wuthering Heights AND The Breakfast Club. Both songwriter and showman, Hawksley Workman is an unpredictable musical force prone to crafting wildly catchy songs that explode fully-formed from a swirling nuclear fusion of cabaret theatricality, glam rock and wantonly pop musical elements.
