Ladyhawke’s self-titled debut album has been released in the UK where the former-Wellingtonian is touring through October ahead of dates in the United States and Europe.

Smarts to her, too, for making her pop sound so good that it never sounds like pastiche.” Watch an ITN ‘On Music’ interview with Ladyhawke on Youtube where she discusses her musical heritage, influences and song-writing.
