Biography

LADYTRON earned a decade’s worth of acclaim by relentlessly pushing boundaries, carving out new sonic and conceptual space and refusing to abide any formula or trend.

So it’s testimony to their craft to say that Gravity The Seducer, the fifth album from the electro-pop provocateurs, is vintage Ladytron — because, like each of the four preceding albums, it’s not ... Read more in Amazon's Ladytron Store

Editorial Reviews

LADYTRON--Helen Marnie, Mira Aroyo, Daniel Hunt and Reuben Wu--formed in 1999 and released their critically lauded debut, 604, in 2001. The album, which included their first single "Playgirl," sparked an entire movement in music pop culture powered by vintage synths and electro-rock engines. The band has a large cult following worldwide, and have toured extensively. Recently they worked with singer Christina Aguilera on her album Bionic to write the songs "Birds of Prey" and "Little Dreamer".

Both great records however, with some of their best songs and singles on both.

Awesome british sounding chick vox with dancy (sometimes chimey) beats!

heard since Pulp's "Different Class." In Ladytron, I have found what for me is the epitome of electonic "pop" music. I first heard Ladytron's single "Playgirl" and was hooked from the first beat. I was afraid that the CD would be average with Playgirl being the only standout "single." I was very excited to hear that almost all of these songs, including the instrumental Mu-Tron, could stand as singles on their own merit. It's true that some of this sounds like earlier synth-pop recordings, but Ladytron takes things in a more fully developed direction beyond mere pop. Every single song sounds well thought out and there is no filler song here. Unlike an earlier commenter here wrote, I believe "Commodore Rock" echoes early Heaven 17. "He took her to a Movie" like Visage and "Discotraxx" like Saint Etienne.
It's been in my car's CD player since I got it. While many other CDs have come and gone this one will probably occupy slot #6 until the next Ladytron recording comes out, which I hope is very soon.

If your new just figuring out what electroclash is or if you are a fan of the genre Ladytron's 604 is a great album packed with great beats catchy songs and interesting harmonies. With 80's instruments and modern production techniques the band is able to sound retro and futuristic at the same time. Overall the sound is fun although many of the tracks have a bit of a goth sentiment to them using the darker Eastern European vocals of Mira and the softer tones of Helaine. The band actually formed in a peculiar way when the two guys in the band met Mira in Bulgaria while DJing and then Helaine joined as they were recording their first singe "He took her to a Movie".

This track is actually on this album twice and while it does have quite an effect it is a rather simple song that is not nearly as developed ad many of the other tracks. This album is a certain must have is you are a fan of `80s music or if you want something that is truly cool. This album will quickly get under your skin and it will certainly become a favorite.

ladytron provokes disinterested dancing: you know, the kind where you stand in the darker corner of the club, against the wall, and slightly move your upper body back and forth while sneering at everyone else because you're so high on coke.

Ladytron does a good job trying to fuse post-Beck nerd-funk with kraftwerkian krautrock. Loose, almost sloppy grooves blend with fat vintage synthesizers and a jet-age style. Helena Marnie's childlike vocals for some reason conjour up images of a bored airline hostess on one of 2001's interplanetary shuttles.
The downside of this album is that the really great tracks often drown among the weird experimental "jam-session" tracks and self-conscious retro feel. "Commodore Rock" is a bit repetative, "CSKA Sofia" is quite repetative, while "ZMEYKA" is jarring with its screechy violin. "He Took Her To a Movie" is so krautrock-retro (right down to the droll vocal delivery) you can sing the lyrics to Kraftwerk's "The Model" along.
Luckily, there are tracks like "Discotraxx", "Ladybird" and "Paco!" that are so catchy you can't help but sing along. It's the same sort of effect as a Bis album, except lacking in the teen elements.

ladytron is the most exciting band i've heard in a very long time. they make me feel all dizzy and excited and out of breath, sort of like the the first time i heard stereolab. cool, smart bands are so rare in this era of bad, trickle down, ghetto-wannabe pop. ladytron have renewed my faith in youth/pop/whatever culture. i've told everyone i know to listen to them right this minute, but no one's paying attention which, i suppose, is fitting since no one listened to their references either. buy '604,' dance naked on your roof, and taste the magic.
(only disappointment is this disc's exclusion of their cover of human league's 'open your heart.' it's a brill reinterpretation.)

...although I might be wrong because I haven't had a chance to get Witching Hour yet. I think their debut is the best as I got this one after "Light & Magic". Songs on "Light & Magic" have the redundancy of getting boring often although it's still a nice album to hear every once in a while. I don't know, I think they made their best effort on their debut. All the tracks seems worth hearing and all of them seem different and eccentric. I would say that this is best Ladytron album to get into for a first time listener. Awesome british sounding chick vox with dancy (sometimes chimey) beats! Must have!

This is one of those albums you are so happy to stumble across! It certainly fell in to my lap and nothing this refreshing has come by me in a long time. I get so tired of hearing all the comparisons to Kraftwerk but for the first time (besides Trans Am) the comparison is valid. Ladytron fuses either (a) 80's synth, speak-'n-spell atmosphere or (b) throbbing analog grooves in to a fun mentality along the lines of Cibo Matto. The end result is something so unique and pleasing to the ear that I can't think of a debut this good since Air's "Moon Safari." If anything, you could actually pair Ladytron up with Air for their sensibility. Neither group over-produces and that lets the music just waft out of the speakers on its own. Playful female vocals get teamed up with melodies that make you think "didn't I hear that on my Atari (or Commodore) once?" HA! That's what makes this great!! Check this CD out because it is the first great techno CD of 2001.
