Ladyhawke, who this month made her New York debut at the Bowery Ballroom and Studio B, said in an interview with The Village Voice, that New Zealand “is like being in Iceland, or something.

In February this year she toured with British group the Ting Tings. Ladyhawke has also announced a UK headlining tour in May 29.
