Headrushing Pop Fusion

Ladyhawke’s May concert at the Ruby Lounge in Manchester is reviewed in the Guardian by Dave Simpson who says that “the verdict from the front row is a shouted: ‘This is good music!’” “She’s back, premiering a much-delayed second album, Anxiety,” Simpson writes. “With na-na-nas and huge pop hooks, piano-pumping newies Sunday Drive and Cellophane and oldies My Delirium and Paris Is Burning wow the crowd as [Pip] Brown transforms into a headrushing pop fusion of Kim Wilde and Madonna.” Masterton-born Ladyhawke plays 02 Shepherds Bush Empire in London on 11 May ahead of Australasian dates.
