Ladyhawke (Pip Brown) checked in with fans on her blog at MySpace on Tuesday (May 18), with news on the follow-up to her 2008 self-titled debut album. The New Zealand pop singer writes:
Just thought I’d let you guys know I’m currently working on the next album… I haven’t actually dropped off the face of the earth, well nearly, I’m at home in New Zealand. I know some people have been curious about the next record.. I’ve been writing tunes here in NZ, and then I’ll be heading over to the UK and the States next month for some more recording, and a change of scenery!
I will let you know when I’m closer to it being finished! :-)
Ladyhawke is out with behind the scenes footage from her ‘Magic’ music video, off the New Zealand synthpop singer’s self-titled debut album. Pip Brown writes:
So, once again, me and Sarah Larnach (my best friend and artist; the lady behind every single piece of Ladyhawke artwork don’tcha know) joined forces and came up with the creative concept for the Magic video. Sarah was kind enough to go on a rant of epic proportions to explain (Note: the post at MySpace has since been removed) how we came up with and executed the whole thing.

A look back to the making of the music video for Ladyhawke’s single ‘Back of the Van’ has been posted at Pip Brown’s MySpace Video channel. “The idea behind ‘Back of the Van’ was, basically when I wrote the song it was a really summery time in Sydney,” Pip explained. “I was kind of into the falling in love feeling when you’re first with someone and everything like holding hands is really exciting, so that’s what I wrote the song about.” Watch the footage below.
Beat magazine spoke with Ladyhawke’s Pip Brown, who revealed how she almost died at the age of 10 after contracting a rare disease that can only be contracted through seagulls. “It was so weird,” Pip explained. “My mum was like ‘It could only happen to you.’ I was at a beach in New Zealand and I think I had a sore or something on my face and I remember lying on this trampoline covered in bird sh**. I had to go to hospital for while, it was really awful, I nearly went into a coma, I had to be on a drip and then I had a reaction to the drip because I was allergic to the penicillin.”

Lindsay Lohan offered a music recommendation on her blog at MySpace (@lindsaylohan) on Monday (December 15), pointing fans to New Zealand electropop artist Pip Brown’s Ladyhawke. The ‘Bossy’ singer writes:
I love this group.
I was actually searching on iTunes not too long ago and was getting the album for “The Black Ghosts” and saw Ladyhawke on the same page. Mixture of 80s pop/new wave and I’m pretty much obsessed with their entire vibe.
Check out: My Delirium, Magic, and Paris Is Burning.
Whole record is dope but those are my personal favorites so far… hope to hear more from them!!
lots of love

Ladyhawke is out with the music video to her new single ‘My Delirium’, the fourth release from the New Zealand electropop artist’s self-titled debut album, out now on Island Records. The video features paintings and illustrations by Sarah Larnach and is directed by Frater’s Benjie Davies and Jim Field. Watch it via YouTube below.
Pip Brown of Ladyhawke checked in with fans on her blog at MySpace (@ladyhawkerock) on Thursday (October 30), discussing the video for her new single ‘My Delirium’. The Wellington, New Zealand electropop artist tells readers:
The idea of the video is that I’m hauled up in a hotel room, on the roadside in the middle of the Arizona desert.
There are two paintings on the wall above the bed, and as my head starts to get foggier, the pictures start to come to life, and I end up inside the paintings, driving in a muscle car down the desert, my suitcase in the back, going somewhere which ends up being outer-space….. after flying over the edge of a cliff. Everyday kinda stuff ya know?
It’s filled with beautiful water color back-grounds, and washed out psychedelic painted space scenes.
Ladyhawke posted some behind the scenes footage at her MySpace TV channel, featuring Pip Brown talking about starting the project, creating her self-titled debut album, how she used to listen to jazz as a child, taking music from the 70’s and 80’s and bringing a modern flavor to it, how the album is more like a soundtrack because each song stands on its own, performing at CBGB’s as the club was falling to pieces and closing down, the adjustment to living in London, and much more.
The clip also features performances of ‘My Delirium’, ‘Back of the Van’, ‘Paris Is Burning’, ‘Magic’ and ‘Dusk Till Dawn’.
