Ghost Blues – Ladyhawk

Ladyhawke was a mid-eighties fantasy movie with Rutger Hauer, Matthew Broderick and Michelle Pfeiffer. They dressed like they’re doing a dry run for Game Of Thrones and talking sub Tolkien waffle about magic and destiny.

Ladyhawke is also a New Zealand born singer and songwriter who has been putting out popular and critically acclaimed indie records since 2001.

Ladyhawk are a bunch of post-grunge indie noiseniks too daft to spell their name right, too stubborn to admit it’s already taken and too locked into their low key jam to really think about how career limiting that poor choice can be.

So what do you get when you choose Ladyhawk without the E? Ghost Blues is ten minutes of riffing, squealing and wheezy vocals. It’s a long hypnotic rock ride that never shows off too much but still has some pretty dexterous tricks in it’s bag.

(I can’t tell you how hard it was to resist a B-Movies and hard drugs pun at the top of the last paragraph)
