Exclusive Premiere: Mohawk Bends' "See What You Do To Me"


Starting in the winter of 2018, Mohawk Bends was founded by four like-minded Austin musicians: Alex La Fuente, Colin Clay, Chris Michael and Jonathan More. Following a private performance for close friends and family during SXSW with the touring California-based act, Hate Drugs, Mohawk Bends immediately began writing their first record.

In the following months, the band made their public debut in high-profile Austin venues, including Stubbs and the Mohawk, and immediately charmed audiences with their polished, energetic performances.

Their latest single, “See What You Do To Me”, is an electrifying yet relatable exploration of creative freedom and the liberation that comes with getting out of one's own way. Instead of being driven by their personal expectations and concerns and writing the songs they thought they should be writing, with "See What You Do To Me", Mohawk Bends remains true to their vision while letting go, having fun and taking their fans along for the ride in the process.

“When we approached ‘See What You Do To Me’, we wanted to create something that would allow our audience a certain amount of escape,” the band said. “We didn’t want to get political, we didn’t want to get too ‘real’ - we just wanted to write a fun, relatable rock tune that people could get lost in. This song is the result of us letting go of our expectations, concerns and our self consciousness about what we thought we should be writing. We wanted to write something we’d enjoy, that our fans would enjoy, and that’s exactly what we did.”
