New Zealand’s Pip Brown, AKA Ladyhawke, released her latest effort Wild Things earlier this summer. Today, we’re premiering the video for the LP’s title track and latest single, which shows two teams (the Wild Things and the Flames) violently battling it out for autonomy over the roller rink, all whilst Ladyhawke performs in the corner. Of the track, Brown said:
This was like a sort of an attempt of a more ballady song I guess, but without being a traditional ballad. More like a dreamy nostalgic love song about reminiscing on your wayward youth, or you know, thinking about all the exciting time you had in your youth, and finding someone and being able to dance around the fire with them literally.
The Youth Hymns-directed video for “Wild Things” seems like something straight out of the ’80s, and that’s definitely a good thing. Check it out below.
Wild Things is out now on Polyvinyl.
