Ladyhawke – Paris Is Burning
June 13, 2012
This song is rated: 1 Pill – entry-level for music novices
Raging Contagion’s been a little quiet lately, hasn’t it? Sincere apologies. Guess we got a little caught up in finding new music that we forgot to update you guys on it. Today’s post features another New Zealander, Ladyhawke, with the song Paris Is Burning from her debut album. Once part of a band, Ladyhawke broke off and released an EP as a personal project in 2008. It wasn’t long after that we discovered her and we’ve been fans since, especially of this song and her other song Magic. It was a tough decision to pick which of the two we would highlight because they’re both excellent. Magic has a great 80s new-wave pop feel to it, but something about songs about Paris catch my attention more, I suppose. Paris Is Burning features more of a funky rock sound with almost some touches of disco, although I totally dig the instrumental bridge at 2:25-2:41 when it gets its own share of a little 80s love.
If you want to check out Magic as well (and this is me saying you should), find it here: Ladyhawke – Magic
Otherwise, enjoy Paris Is Burning below, and be sure to check out more of Ladyhawke! Actually, she just released a new album that we’re digging on as well (maybe we’ll highlight one of those songs too eventually), so really, go check her out.
