Hamish Hawk Shares Video for New Song ‘Nancy Dearest’

    Hamish Hawk has unveiled a new single, ‘Nancy Dearest’, taken from from his forthcoming album A Firmer Hand. The LP, out August 16, was announced in April with the song ‘Big Cat Tattoos’. Listen to the new offering below.

    Speaking about ‘Nancy Dearest’, Hawk shared in a statement:

    Many of the songs on A Firmer Hand are marked by the presence of another: a lover, an authority figure, an enemy, or a confidante. Nancy Dearest is defined instead by an absence. On the one hand, it’s a bitterly defiant song, an ego trip, a narcissistic flight of fancy. On the other, it’s a song about sheer loneliness, isolation, and ultimate loss.

    Either way, it’s a cry for help. We all tell ourselves stories about who we are and who we are not. On occasion something will cause our visions of ourselves to short-circuit. In Nancy Dearest, our hero is spiralling. “I’ve seen the well of emptiness and I have had my fill.” Tell me about it, stud.
