You know, there’s a point when someone is going to have to stand up and point out that rock music is closing in on itself. I get that the 80’s was the musical education for a big chunk of today’s artists, but c’mon…. Try something a little different, already.

To whit, here’s the single ‘Back of the Van‘ from New Zealand artist Ladyhawke:

Not exactly ground breaking, but not a bad tune by any means…. However, I’m not sure going full-on 80’s cheapo effects was the appropriate style choice to accompany a song that already sounds like some unreleased single from The Motels.

    Awwww! I saw “Ladyhawke” and got my hopes up for some 80’s Richard Donner awesomeness.
