Parisian Hang-Ups

Phillipa ‘Pip’ Brown, 30, that’s Ladyhawke to her fans, is interviewed in Paris, where outside the French capital’s “cavernous Nouveau Casino venue, the line of ticketless opportunists snaking into the fading light speaks for her broad appeal.” Later on during the show it’s clear that at times Ladyhawke still can’t comprehend the devotion her music is inspiring in the fans. That shyness dominates the performance as she barely speaks until the crowd gets behind the third song, the disco stomper Dusk Till Dawn. From there onwards the singalongs just get louder and the entire venue is jumping by the time of single Paris is Burning. “I have an obsessive personality, I obsess over things and objects,” she explained earlier in the day. But no matter, the queue of Paris teenagers wanting to get merchandise signed by the side of the stage is forming before the last song has even finished — obsession in one form or another is serving Ladyhawke well.
