New Music This Week: 09APR12

So the Easter bank holiday came and went again under a big black rain cloud, but cheer up, here are our highlights of new music this week.

 

The Track:

Ladyhawke – Sunday Drive

This is the second single to be taken from Pip Brown’s forthcoming album Anxiety, due out in May. The song premiered on Zane Lowe’s Radio 1 show last night.
While Ladyhawke’s new guitar-heavy pop sound is definitely catchy, it seems to lack the punch of her synth-laden debut. What do you think, should Pip have stuck with the electro sound or is she moving with the times by ditching it?

The Artist:

Foxes

Foxes, aka 22-year-old Louisa Rose Allen, is another incredible female singer to grace the 7” singles of Neon Gold Records. The indie label, which has previously put out singles by Marina & the Diamonds and Ellie Goulding, released Foxes’ debut single ‘Youth’ back in January. She will be following up with a new EP, ‘Warrior’ in June.

One thought on “New Music This Week: 09APR12”

  1. Even though it lacks the punch that Pip is known for, it is still worth listening. I have sampled this track for a wedding song I did for a couple, and the music came out great. It was also good to hear that the DJ sampled the music in the same wedding. It sounded as if we coordinated with it. The couple loves Pip and Lady Hawke so it was worth doing the music for them.
