Ladyhawke - 'Anxiety'

Ladyhawke - 'Anxiety'

A lot’s happened since we last heard from Ladyhawke. There’s been a General Election. Plan B did the soul singer thing. Nicola Roberts released a solo album. Some genius made chocolate Philadelphia. All that and more has changed the UK’s...

Ladyhawke - 'Sunday Drive'

Ladyhawke - 'Sunday Drive'

Teaming the theme from Minder with Supergrass’ ‘Alright’ might not sound like a recipe for anything but a Cockney knees up, but these are key ingredients of Ladyhawke’s new track. A paranoid vocal and squelchy guitar lift things...

Ladyhawke - 'Anxiety'

Given that it’s taken her nearly four years to follow up her debut, this endlessly fretful Kiwi should by rights be a mere footnote from the summer 2008 electro revival by now. But by returning with the top-down, wind-in-the hair chorus...

Ladyhawke? Oh, she’s just fine: sitting pretty backstage, mentioning to people how made up she is to be in Spain for the first time. But it’s not her that needs worrying about. It’s her band, select members of which have failed to either: a)...

Is it? Jesus! Quick, loot the Louvre! Oh, sorry, Paris isn’t ‘burning’ in a Bastille-storming, Coldplay way, but rather its dancefloors have ignited to this marvellously funksome throwback, a song so ’80s that Pepsi & Shirlie probably...
