Although Scottish songwriter Hamish Hawk already has a few albums under his belt, the release of Angel Numbers in February will mark his first LP officially released in the States. The latest single from that project recently arrived in the form of “Money,” an equal parts catchy and scathing look at our modern cash-centric society. “‘Money’ is a polemical song, and it’s me at my most cynical,” Hawk shared. “It’s a list of cheap shots and petty grievances I had banging around my head at the time of writing… It’s really no surprise that it turns out I’m the stick in the mud. What’s more, I’m interminably short on cash.”
For his “Neighborhoods” set, Hawk gave an acoustic performance of the track in Edinburgh, Scotland, leaving plenty of space for his acidic lyrics (and strong local accent) to flourish over his acoustic guitar strums.
