Ladyhawke tour takes off

By | Published on Wednesday 25 January 2012


Electro-pop character Ladyhawke is to take flight on a new UK tour in honour of her previously reported new album ‘Anxiety’, released on 19 Feb.

Since she has also just released ‘Black, White And Blue’, you can stream that very track – complete with chorus that occasionally sounds like The Bee Gees’ ‘Tragedy’ – here:

She distinguishes the LP from its predecessor thus: “It’s lot more rocky. The tone of it is definitely darker. It’s still poppy and fun, but I listened to a lot of guitar rock when I was writing it, stuff like Pixies, Blur, Nirvana, and I’ve always wanted to make a guitar record. There’s no synth, but there’s some organ. It’s more of a straight-up rock record”.
