LADYHAWKE TO RELEASE DEBUT EP IN OCTOBER PARIS IS BURNING EP OUT OCTOBER 14th ON MODULAR RECORDS SELECT US TOUR DATES TO FOLLOW IN OCTOBER

New Zealand-based Ladyhawke (aka Pip Brown) will release her US debut EP Paris Is Burning on Modular Records on October 14th. A fascinating introduction to her forthcoming self-titled album, the title track “Paris Is Burning” has been a DJ and critic’s favorite in Europe & Australasia for the past few months (featured on UK Radio One’s playlist) and has cemented the current buzz on Ladyhawke all over the world.

The EP also includes a brilliant remix of “Paris Is Burning” by label-mates Cut Copy, a sublime French language version of the song (“Paris s’enflamme”), the very first song that Pip wrote for Ladyhawke (“Back Of The Van”), plus a great remix by Van She Tech. To conclude matters, a new song Pip has written gets its world premiere on the EP, called “Danny & Jenny”.

Following a headlining UK tour at the start of October and prior to her touring Europe with Black Kids, Ladyhawke and her band will play four US shows the week of October 13th. Ladyhawke has already played most of Europe’s leading festivals this year, including three shows in a day at Glastonbury, as well as touring with the likes of We Are Scientists and Soulwax.

With Ladyhawke’s self titled debut album marrying serious song crafting with elements of vintage pop, electro and rock, this story looks likely to evolve at a rapid pace from here on.

10/14/08 NEW YORK, NY SANTOS PARTY HOUSE
10/15/08 CHICAGO, IL AV-AERIE
10/16/08 LOS ANGELES, CA THE ECHO
