It's been five years since Ladyhawke's more aurally angular follow-up, 'Anxiety', which yielded the stand-out, synch-friendly single, 'Blue Eyes.' Like its predecessor, the album charted in the U.K.'s Top 40 and in Australia's and New Zealand's Top 20, respectively. Her first album's joyous, '80s-electrified breakout singles, 'Paris Is Burning' and 'My Delirium,' made an impact Stateside as well, sound-tracking Ugly Betty, CSI: Miami, Top Gear, and other shows. 'My Delirium' like wise vaulted up New Zealand's and Australia's Top 10 singles chart, going platinum in Australia and hit No. 33 in the U.K.
"People wonder why there's always a massive gap between my albums," says Brown, "The reason is both complicated and easy. The simple explanation: I've never released anything I'm not proud of. That's important to me. I wanted this album to reflect the frame of mind I was in when creating it. I tried very hard to change my life for the better, and to create a positive and bright environment to exist in. This album really is a reflection of the headspace I found myself in after achieving this. Colourful is one word in particular that springs to mind."
Brown's conviction to authenticity led her on this third album journey, which started back in 2013. She scrapped a full album's worth of material before taking around a year to craft the blissed-out 'Wild Things' with producer Tommy English (Børns, Tiësto, Dark Waves), whom she met through her L.A. neighbor, tattoo artist/musician Kat Von D.
"I think I went even more synthy and poppy this time around," Brown says of the buoyant 'Wild Things.' "I feel good for the first time in 10 years. I have a clear mind! I have a wife. I feel stable. That is what I'm celebrating."
Me Not You
There’s something very haunting about debut single "Bulletproof" by Me Not You, a mysterious Brooklyn band that doesn't seem to exist beyond their Soundcloud and Twitter profiles. The single, which reached #10 on Hype Machine's Popular Charts, sports a 90s alt-pop vibe reminiscent of uber-melodic, not so raw female fronted bands like Garbage or Sneaker Pimps. It shares with those bands' repertoire a vague moodiness, expressed through its edgy synth textures that drone on and, later in the track, melt with a wall of distorted guitars flirting with shoegaze. Amidst this atmosphere is the lustrous bright female voice that breaks through the darkness with her angelic tone and reletable lyrics about humanity’s strength.
