Sparhawks / Press

"The band has achieved a very unique style with influences from all over; mainly focused on the post rock, math rock, and alternative acts from the late 90s to the early 2000's."

“The 3:4 timed, blackened track, Ice Noise , breaks into space with a vicious claw shredding the fabric of division. Falling into a sonic laser beam of hypnotic looping,”

"If you haven’t heard Sparhawk’s music then I strongly suggest you sit yourselves down with a couple of nice beers and check it out here! You will not be disappointed. These guys play Post-Rock the way it should be played."

"Fans of 60's and 70's psychedelic and progressive rock and 90's grunge and alternative metal will  hear something to their liking, and you'll also hear touches of jazz, emo and indie from this unique instrumental post-rock band."

“You could travel New England's whole expanse, north to the White Mountains of New Hampshire and south to the mansions of Greenwich, Connecticut, east to Boston and west to the Berkshires, scouring every city alley and sparse farm town along the way, and you wouldn't find another band quite like the Sparhawks, a group of proud native Central Mass musicians.”

“SPARHAWKS - THE CABIN (2013) Last Time! on Lots of Kni.....er ugh PLENTY OF SWORDS! Boston Based Sparhawks finally drop their first full length and they have three songs up on the bandcamp for a sampler platter. Deff. some more post-rock instrumentals here with slight math flirtations. Production is top notch as well with a great drum sound. Have to say that I did expect a bit more progress toward some end of things...either more math or more post-rock but balance is still managed here as last time. Not a bad thing at all. The guys have obviously become tighter and are able to pull off some slicker break downs as a result. Check it but out for sure. ps. a bit sad they pulled the demo down”

“SPARHAWKS - DEMO 2012 Some pretty refreshing instrumental post-rock musics going down. Mathy? eh not as much as id like but certainly some smatterings here and there. Boston group Sparhawks have a familiar sound sure, but that doesn't take away from the fact that songs always have an incredible honesty. Not only that but its a lot of fun. Throw in some pretty sensational drumming moments and varied guitar atmosphere and thats a recipe for some solid ass rock music. Like I said this is familiar territory for a lot of groups....but to see this young group succeeding on all cylinders makes me that much more excited to see whats in store for the full length. Good Stuff.”

“Welcome to the fold, Sparhawks. The new four-piece instrumental band is far from hardcore, though the members have their roots in the scene. Their sound is more of mix between jazz and rock, with a mellow, yet groovy, vibe. There is something about hardcore bands that sets them apart from everyone else. Members bring a certain level of energy and excitement to the way they play. Sparhawks’ sound is anything but hardcore, yet they bring the hardcore mentality to their songs and live sets. Even if the music isn’t necessarily heavy, they still play as hard as they can. This year should be a good year for the guys, as they plan to release their full-length album and continue to play live all over the state. Look for them at a show soon, and go listen to their demo, because it rocks. ”
