Artist: Ladyhawk, Album: Shots, Song: Fear

"But I just wanna feel something other than fear.  I don't wanna go back but I can't stay here.  And I just wanna taste something other than tears.  I don't wanna go home but I can't stay here.  Anymore now."  Ladyhawk are a 4 piece from Kelowna, BC.  Shots was their third release on the Jagjaguwar label in 2008.  The song, Fear, has a dark and gritty feel to it.  However, the guitar driven melody might be reminiscent of Neil Young and Crazyhorse.  It's a great rock song with a catchy chorus.  There isn't much on the band since '08.  Their Myspace page shows them playing a few gigs in the Vancouver area in October.  They have a blog entitled where they seem to post videos and movie trailers.  Lead singer, Duffy Driediger, released a side project this year called, Duffy & the Doubters.  The album Shots is available on Itunes and Amazon.  You can hear the track on You Tube (  Thanks for reading and enjoy!
