More on Ladytron:
In 2001, the first fruits of what would become the new electronic-rock movement began to fall. LADYTRON’s debut, 604, was an integral part of that first strike. A pristine, analog adventure of sound and substance, the album would go on to influence the genre itself, while the group quietly made a global impact both visually and stylistically.
Hits like “Playgirl” and “Seventeen” (from their 2002 follow-up, Light & Magic) quietly rebelled against the bratty, disingenuous motifs of the time, instead invoking the sonic storytelling of groups like Air, Stereolab, and My Bloody Valentine. Ladytron’s counterbalance of emotional vulnerability and psychological ingenuity–personified by the opposing vocals of Helen Marnie and Mira Aroyo—created their own world that had yet to be fully explored.
Their live performances immediately set them apart: “We wanted to play all those exotic instruments live,” says Mira of the mountain of antique synths the group brandished on stage. Daniel Hunt adds, “Not many people ever performed that way, besides Emerson, Lake and Palmer or something. It felt like hanging around at Bell Labs in 1970.”
With a full slate of European and North American tour dates planned for early summer—including the Bonnaroo Festival in June—audiences will have ample opportunity to take in Ladytron’s synthesis, and see for themselves how the group has redefined the genre they helped establish.
