"...as tight and catchy as a baseball mitt."
"People wonder why there's always a massive gap between my albums," says Pip Brown, better known as Ladyhawke, the one-woman synth-pop act from New Zealand. The reason is both complicated and easy. The simple explanation: "I've never released anything I'm not proud of. That's important to me."
Those instincts have served Brown well, starting with her self-titled debut in 2008, which peaked at No. 16 on the U.K. album charts and No. 1 in Australia and New Zealand's album charts. Ladyhawke's more aurally angular follow-up, Anxiety, charted in the U.K.'s Top 40 and in Australia's and New Zealand's Top 20, respectively.
Brown's conviction to authenticity led her on a journey starting in 2013. Over three years, she scrapped a full Ladyhawke album ("The material didn't feel like me. It felt too dark or something"). Once reliant on alcohol to surmount social anxiety ("I'd never done a sober show in my life until last December"), she quit drinking and focused on getting healthy. Then she welcomed that newfound clarity by crafting her latest release, the blissed-out Wild Things.
"This album has given me a sense of purpose. Even if it took me months or years to get that purpose, as soon as I finished that record it was like an unbelievable weight was lifted off my shoulders," she says. You can hear that freedom in Wild Things' unabashed exuberance, a powerful, vibrant expression of life itself. "Everything I wrote was all the stuff I was going through. I got it out of my system, exorcised it from my soul."1. A Love Song

The Family Jewels on vinyl for the first time! Diamandis' debut studio album - it debuted at number five on the UK Albums Chart with first-week sales of 27,618 copies, and was eventually certified gold by the British Phonographic Industry. Produced by Liam Howe (Ex-Sneaker Pimps), Biff Stannard (Kylie) and Pascal Gabriel (Ladyhawke), The Family Jewels is part autobiography/part fairytale with the sound ranging from the uber-shiny pop of "Shampain" to the fragile elegance of "Obsessions" and "Numb", the pop-punk of "Girls" and the joyful quirkiness of "Mowgli's Road" and "Hermit the Frog". This steely determination even fed into the production of the album with Marina making producer Liam Howe record 482 vocal takes for one song.
The end result is an album that functions as a fully formed piece of art. Heartbreaking and emotional at times as exemplified in "I Am Not A Robot", which reached no.26 in the UK Charts, Marina lays herself open and vulnerable for her fans, the diamonds.
Diamandis was ranked in second place on the Sound of 2010 poll organised by BBC, behind English singer-songwriter Ellie Goulding. Mowgli's Road was released as the lead single from Diamandis' debut studio album on 13 November 2009. It was followed by Hollywood on 1 February, which reached number 12 on the UK Singles Chart.1.
