There are a lot of synth-pop bands out there who think their music is something new under the sun. And it seems like they keep reproducing. Maybe it's my current setting—a hazy morning, still wiping the sleep from my eyes—but Portland three-piece Hawks Do Not Share sound perfect right now. Their debut full-length, HDNS, which follows the band's two EPs, is loaded with synthesizers. But there are plenty of other textures to grab on to: crisp beats, sinewy and compressed guitars, and the hushed vocals of George Lewis III. More importantly, it's not the kind of cutesy pop that seems to be running rampant these days. Hawks Do Not Share play lilting songs with depth and room to breathe. So we can all breathe easier.
