Published Apr 01, 2011Still no word on when or even if Vancouver rockers Ladyhawk will be recording a follow-up to 2008's Shots, but yet another demo has surfaced from the troupe, giving us at least a glimmer of hope.
Following last February's "No Can Do," a tripped-out, low-budget clip has just popped up for a demo version of a hazy, lo-fi grunger called "Footprints." The song is rife with the anthemic, yet darkly melancholic riffs we expect from the crew, complete with a washed-out choir backing up singer Duffy Driediger. Guitarist Darcy Hancock delivers his spaciest solo ever on the tune, relying on layers of ambient fuzz, as well as a few tasty licks.
As for the video, have you ever wondered what it would be like to watch Kate Bush, circa "Wuthering Heights," sexily dancing around a miniature obelisk in a darkened room while being filmed on a broken Betamax camera with an ounce of Vaseline resting on its fish eye lens? Well, here's your answer.
Check out the stunning clip below. Please, dudes, give us a new album asap.
