Ladyhawke - Black White & Blue

Do you like facts? We do.

In fact our inner geek would quite happily write every blog post as simply a list of facts. Not beliefs or opinions (you can form your own on those) but facts. We’d be like a mini new music Wikipedia with only one editor.

But in the interest of adding to the debate and having ‘an authentic voice’ as us blogger types like to say, it is necessary for us to also push our beliefs and opinions on you.

So today we’ll divide the facts from the opinions and you can choose what you want.


1. This is the new comeback single by Ladyhawke.

2, It is called Black White & Blue.

3. Ladyhawke originates from New Zealand.

4. The video pays homage (ie rips off) to the 1970's classic The Eyes Of Laura Mars starring Faye Dunaway (look here).

5. The video was filmed in Auckland in late 2011.

6. It was directed by Tabitha Denholm who is best known for her work with Florence & The Machine.


On first listen we weren’t particularly impressed with this song. But it’s grown on us. We particularly like the R2D2 robot sounds on it.There are some remixes as well. The Big Pink created one (they need to do something to earn some money and increase their profile after the poor sales of their blink and you missed it poorly performing second LP) but we prefer the Punks Jump Up Remix - it has that 80’s New York disco sound that we very much approve of.
