The Wrong Life

A 5 track alt country ep (20m 34s) — released July 31st 2011 on Audio Antihero

The Audio Antihero debut for Paul Hawkins & The Awkward Silences. We cheerily present this twisted mess of backwoods Americana and sinister Outsider Pop as the fourth installment in the AAH "Commercial Suicide Series."

"Twisted, frustrated, comedic, one thing is for certain, this isn't pretty, but it damn sure is charming." – Bearded

"Underground legend...Doing something truly on their own and making the rules up as they go along"– Artrocker

"Clamouring for the position of best British band of the 21st Century – 5/5" – God Is In The TV

"Hawkins' deadpan vocal delivery works to great effect…lyrics are very clever and spot-on…a thoroughly unpleasant listen." – Drowned In Sound

"Paul Hawkins is the Preacher Man – 8/10." – The Music Fix

"Rejoice in their individualism, their energy, their off-kilter rock n roll with intruiging lyrics and a captivating presence." – Huw Stephens, BBC
