Lady­hawke club show,

LADY­HAWKE will be pro­long­ing the Splen­dour-ben­der this week­end, bring­ing the festival to a close on Mon­day night with a DJ set at long-run­ning By­ron Bay club LaLa Land. The New-Zealand born muso re­cently re­leased a new al­bum, Anx­i­ety, the fol­low-up to her 2008 self-ti­tled de­but.

More than a year in the mak­ing, Anx­i­ety boasts 10 tracks brim­ming with ir­re­sistible hooks and fresh, syn­thy beats. Lady­hawke, aka Pip Brown, says the al­bum name re­lates to her hav­ing a ‘‘dig at my­self’’.

‘‘I have pretty bad anx­i­ety. It’s un­pre­dictable and some­times I can be re­ally anx­ious,’’ she says. The al­bum was recorded in the south of France, and Lady­hawke says the lo­ca­tion topped her list of beau­ti­ful places she has vis­ited.

‘‘I just used to stare out of the win­dow. I’m liv­ing in Lon­don again now. I re­ally miss New Zealand, mostly my fam­ily, but I re­ally want to have a house and some­where to put my stuff,’’ she says. ‘‘All of my stuff is in stor­age and I al­ways feel a bit up­rooted and like I don’t have any­where to call home.’’
