CRITIC REVIEWS

musicOMH

Wild Things is her most consistent and coherent effort to date, surpassing even her debut. It may have taken four years, but the end result has more than justified the wait.

DIY

‘Wild Things’ ... sees her step up to another new level of ace. Her most consistent album to date, and let-loose like never before, blimey it’s good to have her back.

Spin

Ladyhawke’s long-awaited Wild Things is both a Tegan and Sara-worthy fever dream and a Little Boots-ian collection of expertly rendered synthesized-rock.

AllMusic

Whether it was leaving behind all the "dark" songs, hiring a producer too conversant in the sounds of the day, or simply trying too hard to have hits, something went wrong on Wild Things.

The Line of Best Fit

Demons beat, married and now living in LA, Brown’s new environment is reflected on this release, and it’s….ok.

Pitchfork
In abandoning the spikier sound of Anxiety for more straightforward synth-pop ... Ladyhawke returns to one of the most overcrowded genres going, where thousands vie for maybe a few months of syncs and a lifetime of anonymity.

The Guardian

It feels like an echo chamber for the last five years of anodyne pop, and could have easily been created by a computer tasked with making generic 21st-century chart music.

Ironically this album has been designed to grab the attention of the masses, to be played from radios worldwide, whereas in reality these will be the tracks that signal to gig and festival goers everywhere that it's time for a toilet break.

Third album for Pip Brown and, though it sounds brighter in its 80's electro-pop retromania, there's not even a slightest, wild thing inside.
