Christopher Hawkins and North Machine
I See You
Featuring James Bacon and Jody Davies
The new record released on Friday has hit the streaming sites and beyond. It’s been a while since the secretive Sheffield resident made a musical move and he’s done it with force. The recent recording was made with his new band North Machine. The album is based on the Park Hill estate, where I once lived, and is about the social issues that are known to arise. Delving into the “compassion and humanity” of those who did and still do live there, the album called No One Talks features several local names. No One Talks gives North Machine and Christopher Hawkins the foundation stone they need for building their opus to last the years like this latest subject.
The track begins with a volley of piano that cascades in arpeggio style gallops into rhythm. A wailing distorted guitar focuses the intent as the drums and vocals begin to tell the story. A tale of people-watching and presuming on the activities around us carries us into a rock and roll sensation of thrust. A pulsing guitar hits the bass as the piano phrase continues to rain down outside. The vocals grow into the heavy shoes as each passing verse takes the energy a little further. An evocative and passionate delivery sits on top of bluesy electric guitars and stylish runs of fancy finger-work.
