The New Zealand-based electro songstress gives us her recommendations as she returns to Modular Recs with her new album
You may remember Miss Ladyhawke from singles such as 'Paris Is Burning', 'My Delirium', and 'Back of the Van', circa late noughties with upbeat pop vocals and fiery electro-tinged beats in the background. The New Zealand-based musician is now back with her second album, ‘Anxiety’, on Modular Records. As the follow-up to 2008’s debut album, Anxiety was produced by long-time collaborator Pascal Gabriel whilst Ladyhawke took on lead guitar, bass and drums on the single as well as her distinctive vocals. Having just released her comeback single ‘Black, White & Blue’, she gives us her recommendations here. Get an exclusive download of the Nile Delta remix of it HERE.
