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.
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?
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.
You can also download Foxes’ new track, ‘White Coats’ which is due for release in June, for free on Soundcloud here.
