At first listen, Hawk and Wolves debut EP seems like the work of a group of musicians well in their prime. A concept album silmiar to the work of artists like Coheed & Cambria and The Dear Hunter, Delta Waves – The Alread EP is a masterful piece of music to say the least. One would not be surprised to hear that the release was produced none other by Michael Birnbaum & Chris Bittner responsible for record such artists as Coheed & Cambria, The Sleeping and Codeseven. Hawk and Wolves debut Introduces a fictitious Army vet named Phillip David Alread, who has been left paraplegic from war, not to mention mentally scarred and discarded by the state. Forcibly placed in a psych ward for a mandatory observation period, he constructs a dream world to escape his reality. To decyfer each song one by one would be unjust to the whole of the album, though the first official song on the release “Scene 2: Save the Whales” is a clear standout for its musical mastery while closing track “Scene 7: Becoming the Device” show the most range and is a satisfying conclusion to a well crafted debut by Akron natives Hawks and Wolves. If the band keeps up what they have going here, they should have no problem finding a home for their music on an established label. The EP will include digital extras of conceptual art and scene depictions by underground illustrators Amonte Littlejohn and Shawn Coss to color the musical score. Delta Waves – The Alread EP can now be downloaded via iTunes.
