Daily Yinz – House & Hawk – Thrillseekers

Pittsburgh duo House & Hawk return to rocking with their new Pure Emotion EP (Heavy River Records) after an “extended vacation in the spiraling world of electronic pop.”

“Thrillseekers” instills the noisy shagginess of H&H’s sound with an anthemic drive, moving the proceedings out of the garage and onto the open road itself. Chugging power chords race by like the the dashed center lines of a rural highway while scorching guitar solos and fills blaze trails in the air overhead. As if energized by the propulsion of the music, vocalist Alexander Strung sings of a distant mountain that “calls us into the chaos of fear” before deciding, “Maybe it’s enough to never die,” repeating the second phrase over and over until it becomes a mantra, a rallying cry for the new decade. Even though time is a social construct and New Years doesn’t matter and all that cynical stuff, “Thrillseekers” might just rouse you into keeping that resolution going a little while longer.
