GOT A PROBLEM? ODDS AGAINST YOU? CALL THE L.A. STREETHAWK!
Born out of love for the brooding, synth-driven movie and TV soundtracks of the early 1980s, L.A. STREETHAWK pushes towards the darker territories of what has become known as Synthwave. Based out of Bochum and Essen, Germany, the duo consisting of Peter Vignold and media composer Simon Rahm mashes up a no-frills analog vibe with a cutting edge production, resulting in their strangely familiar vintage music from the year 2049. Just a few months after the release of their debut EP SOMETHING BETTER (February 2019), which features American Alternative Rock singer WOLFGANG PARKER of WEEDHAVEN LAUGHING ACADEMY on its title track, L.A. STREETHAWK has steadily built towards their reputation as a blistering live act that takes their material to the next level on stage. Their latest release, the single KISS ME AT THE BLACK HOLE, offers a first glimpse at their upcoming debut album RAW DEAL, which is scheduled to arrive during the first half of 2020.

"The catchy title track, a duet of US punk-swing-star Wolfgang Parker and indie newcomer YuXiu, proves hit qualities." - VOLT MAGAZIN
