First Impressions: Ladyhawke Is Black, White and Sometimes Blue

Wednesday, January 25, 2012

Full speed ahead we go into synthy symphonies on Ladyhawke's latest, "Black, White & Blue." This new breath is all in prep for Anixety, the long-anticipated follow-up to one of 2008's best debuts (seriously, Ladyhawke is a-mazzzzing to the 10th power). Glad to hear that Miss Hawke hasn't given up the synth steez, as personally, that revival 80's sound suits her and keeps my 80's baby arse exalted. Anxiety is all about adding in a rockier edge, and from the craggy interruptions of guitars and tumbling drums in this moment that give a nod to the early Punk eras---she's keeping that promise, and "Black, White & Blue" is very pleasing in that retrospect. Not sure if I really love it, but I don't loathe it, and that is always a plus. Marinate in it below.
