Singer-songwriter Ladyhawke is set to release her second record, Anxiety, at the end of the month. Until then you can satiate your appetite with this acoustic rendition of "Black, White & Blue." The stripped-down version gives the track a bedroom pop feel, with the emphasis on Phillipa Brown's soft but commanding alto.
"I love pop music, and I hate that there is so much stigma attached to it," said Brown. "A great example is Kurt Cobain – he loved pop music, and he essentially made grunge-pop. Pop is in everything, even in something like a Metallica record. I suppose my sound is quite glam-y, indie, Sixties pop, if that makes any sense."
Anxiety comes out May 29th, but you can download "Black White & Blue" here.
