Artist: Ladyhawke
Description:
New Zealand songstress Ladyhawke makes what can best be described as Euro-American disco-party trash. This multi-instrumentalist clearly grew up playing Stevie Nicks in the mirror over a soundtrack of '70s funk and '80s freestyle pop. Here, the finest moments come on "Love Don't Live Here," which re-imagines classic Heart as fronted by a more overtly cooing seductress, and "Paris Is Burning," where Ladyhawke teases through the chorus in its eponymous city's native tongue. Fun is the operating word on this self-titled full-length, and it's achieved by balancing the catchy and current with the warm embrace of nostalgia.

Editorial Reviews:
Spin (p.90) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Through the digital wizardry and pumping beats, you can hear an unabashedly heartfelt and occasionally vulnerable artist." CMJ - "Ladyhawke is a born-again pop-culture enthusiast with echoing pipes reminiscent of the mop-top divas who once dripped sultry vocals over mixed guitar and electronic backbeats and minimal bass." Clash (magazine) (p.86) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Her eponymous debut is the closest thing to 'Betty Davis Eyes' or 'Stand Back' recorded for our generation..."
