One of the brightest stars to light up the pop firmament this millennium is back, with a difference. Thanks to her brilliant self-titled 2008 debut, LadyHawke, aka Pip Brown, shot to stardom around the world, particularly in Britain and the Antipodes, where the New Zealand-born singer-songwriter soon gathered up armfuls of awards as the breakthrough artist of the moment. Her follow-up will surely even exceed those achievements, and establish the wildly talented young tunesmith as one of her generation’s most beloved pop heroines. Eighteen months in the making, Anxiety carries ten instant classics, each brimming over with irresistible hooks, fresh beats and ear-grabbing synth sounds. In town for Splendour in the Grass, LadyHawke rounds out her Australian tour with an intimate DJ set performance at La La Land next Monday.
