Muscle Hawk


CITY: Salt Lake City
SONG THAT GOT US: “V-Pro” (mp3)
ON THE TUBES: MySpaceReverb NationYouTube

WHY THEM? Kids in Utah need to dance. Hence: Muscle Hawk. Gunning for an epilepsy-inducing sensory overload that admirably brings back the spirit of “Where were you in ’92?” UK hardcore, Muscle Hawk put four firmly on the floor and crank up the strobe. Inevitably the soundtrack to many an SLC party-gone-wrong, MH songs like “V-Pro” work their face-melting magic through a bullying funk that doesn’t rely on gimmicks, fast cuts, or annoying filters to attract attention. Look for the trio’s mix of live instrumentation and digital prowess to potentially convert legions of pilgrims in the coming years to the good word of ravetastic bliss.

BONUS BIT! Freshly added drummer Lindsay Heath (a/k/a Kid Madusa) has been in such Beehive State mainstay acts as Mushman, Redd Tape, and the Vile Blue Shades.
