Tracklist: Paul Hawkins & The Awkward Silences - Gomorrah

The child catcher of anti-folk-rock, Paul Hawkins has found the most appropriate of new homes in Audio Antihero, who release The Wrong Life EP on 1st August. This taster has something akin to an 80s FM radio chorus, AOR hook and backing vocalists in place, though nothing delivered in that voice could ever be radio-friendly for long and it's more Prefab Sprout subtlety than MOR schlock. It's 'just' about a broken relationship but in that lies a world of drawn Biblical comparisons and moral uncertainties.
