Album Watch: The Return Of Ladyhawke
Thursday, December 8, 2011
Ladyhawke (birth certificate name: Pip Brown) is on the comeback next year----and she's bringing new tunes with her.
*vogues and dances a jig*
The New Zealand synth n' bass maven is dropping her loooong anticipated sophomore album, entitled Anxiety, come March of 2012. She's keeping fans in their own pot of anticipation by releasing the tease of a brand new album track as well as the artwork for the pending album (which you can see on the left is fantastical) this week. Ladyhawke has been dropping some newness during her recent stage shows as well. Most notably there were some song reveals at her gigs for London's 100 Club---which you can check out here (the sound quality is not the greatest but it's better than nothing). I've heard bits of gossip about Ladyhawke slacking off of the 80's neon Day-Glo that made her 2008 debut album just plain magnificent for this effort. Yet, from the sound of the tease and with Pascal Gabriel back at the producing driver's seat, I'm not too worried about changes here and there. I completely wore out her debut (an all-time favorite album of mine), thus I'm quite anxious to hear what Pip is packing for us next year.
Peep the teaser video after the cut---usually I'm not a big fan of snippets, but this is one of those cases that I broke the rules for, ha!
