Argonauta is a collection of songs about Burns’ struggle with the grief of losing her mother, while also navigating a new relationship, and ultimately trying to figure out what the new normal is for her life. The follow up to her 2013 debut, Life in the Midwater, the self-produced new album sees Burns continuing the vulnerable and honest thread of her lingering feelings of darkness — and depression — while also maintaining hope for the future. “Argonauta is the child of a strange chasm in my life, the space where both unfathomable, debilitating loss and new love and hope reside,” says Burns. “In an attempt to process this romantic love, the loss of my mother who lived her life as my confidant and dearest friend, and the hope of someday gaining acceptance of life’s ever-shifting cycles, these songs emerged. I had to write this record to give voice to the depression, anxiety and uncertainty I endured while grieving.” Writing Argonauta served as a relief valve for Burns; now the eight sumptuous, haunting songs — led by her captivating, densely layered vocals — extend a similar balm for listeners.
I See Hawks in L.A. soared relatively trouble free for the first decade of their existence, but in 2018 they’re emerging from a string of confrontations with mortality, life choices, and the slow leakage of youthful possibility. It’s been almost 17 years since the release of their eponymous debut — on September 11, 2001. They didn’t get rich, they didn’t get famous, and yet they’re still here, perhaps benefitting artistically from the rocky passage. The rich flavor of battered soul. It’s clear these Hawks are in it for the music, for each other, and for the adventure of it all.
