It’s hard to believe it’s been almost four years since New Zealand’s Ladyhawke, otherwise known as Pip Brown, burst onto the scene with her immensely danceable debut record, but her second album Anxiety will make you forget she ever left. “Girl Like Me” starts things off with a Metric-inspired bang, with Brown’s smoky vocals cascading over layers of snappy drums and punchy bass lines. First single “Black White & Blue” begins as a relatively mellow head bopper but quickly erupts into a triumphant chorus of synthesizers and guitars. Upbeat songs like “Blue Eyes” and “Vaccine” could serve as hipster jock jams, perfect for soundtracking ironic softball games or impromptu dance parties. In the wake of more experimental acts like Lykke Li and Austra, Ladyhawke can seem a bit dated, but Brown’s ear for pure pop goodness makes the ’80s flavor of Anxiety a sound worth revisiting.
