I don’t particularly have one favourite album, but this album comes close bar two of the latter songs in the album. This cut here shows a more melancholic and reminisceent side of Ladyhawke. Tunes that are catchy but with depth.
Ladyhawke’s most recent single, released in 2009, from her self-titled debut album. You might know her from the “My Delerium” song. This one is quite the tune.
Because this is pop, a lot of people will immediately be put off by this song, well I was. However after listening to it a few times I noticed the great songwriting in it, and the influence from a lot of 80’s synth pop artist. The sound of the small breaths after each line really make the song work, and the nice modern sound to all the music in it makes it a very enjoyable track. It has a very fun tone to it, and a lot of nice energy. It sounds pretty fresh, although a bit retro at the same time, it’s like she has freshened up a retro sound.
As long as you don’t overlisten to this song, it’s a great laid-back pop track to have a listen to. Sounds a bit like the artist “Ladytron” of a similar name, who I used to mix her up with a bit. This song is probably just like something she would do, except a little simpler and less serious.
