Sarah and Ted, the blood and bones of A Nighthawk, found it was high time to challenge their own ideas of what making music was all about. Both play and played in touring, recording, releasing bands (Sarah in Dag för Dag, Ted in Shout Out Louds), both had left the edgy, itchy days of their 20s behind, both still had burning bellies for creating. Sarah for the music and accompanying writing – Ted for the music and accompanying imagery. And so when the seemingly never-to-arrive thaw finally graced their Scandinavian headquarters with its rosy cheeks in spring 2011, they hit the drawing boards and created A Nighthawk. As Mary Shelley had once widdled away at her Frankenstein, Sarah and Ted carved away at the wings of A Nighthawk.
