Fresh from a US and European tour, which included a spectacular performance at the Vienna Life Ball, Ladyhood is amped to take the Australian pop scene to the next level.
With the release of her new EP 'Like You Mean It' in June, Ladyhood's fan base has exploded. Attracting over 50,000 real Instagram followers, this androgynous artist’s husky-sweet voice, feisty attitude and undeniable sexual charisma, are drawing frequent comparisons to the late, great, Chrissy Amphlett.
'Up and Away', the first single from the EP, is an emotive duet featuring powerhouse vocalist Hayley Teal. Exploring the agonising costs of unconditional love, the track's music video tells a story of heartbreak and healing.
The follow-up single, ‘Superstar Dance’, was written by LadyHood and sought after LA Producer Andrew Furze, while on tour in the UK and nostalgic for their Melbourne party days. The track even makes reference to iconic Prahran nightclub Love Machine and some of their more debaucherous nights.
Other tracks on the EP are ‘Animals’, a thumping and provocative number about exploring the possibilities of sexuality, and ‘Madeline’, an almost sequel to ‘Animals’ about the secrets we might keep when we do let go of our inhibitions.
LadyHood’s lightning rise on the international music scene followed the success of her debut EP ‘Finger On The Pulse’, in 2015. Both ‘Naked’ and ‘Playing With Fire’ from the EP were nominated at the Australian Independent Music Awards in 2016.
LadyHood has collaborated with music superstars, Grammy-Award winning producer Jeff Bova and GoGo’s rock legend Gina Schock, among them.
LadyHood’s musical style combines the well-crafted pop sensibilities of Sia, with the pumping, disco, glam-rock of Goldfrapp. Inspired by luminaries such as Prince and Freddy Mercury, LadyHood's commanding on-stage presence is totally fearless. She is a pulsing heart in pop music right now and has no intention of slowing down.
With an east coast Australian tour in the works, LadyHood is excited to show Australia just why international audiences are getting 'wood' for the ‘Hood.
