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

Amazon.com

Four albums in, and it’s quite clear that Liverpool’s Ladytron are not susceptible to the dancefloor’s flightier urges. Like its predecessors, Velocifero is electro-pop to the core, a sparking circuit of cold emotions and enveloping synths that despite its remove--or perhaps because of it--feels the perfect vehicle for some genuinely affecting pop songs. Boasting additional production work from Nine Inch Nails’ Alessandro Cortini and Vicarious Bliss of notorious Parisian imprint Ed Banger, there is a certain robust quality of sound here: "Black Cat", sung by Mira Aroyo in her native Bulgarian, commences with booming drums and big black smears of synthesiser. But there are signs of a certain playfulness, too. "Ghosts" rides a lolloping glam beat that positions it in the area of Goldfrapp’s Black Cherry, Helena Marnie’s cool, mysterious vocal recalling Stereolab’s Laetitia Sadler in its veiled promise: "There's a ghost in me/who wants to say I'm sorry/doesn't mean I'm sorry". The Aroyo-sung "Kletva", meanwhile, is a cover of the theme from an old Bulgarian children’s TV program, performed with an uncharacteristic jaunt that, while relatively alien to Ladytron, actually works rather nicely.–-Louis Pattison

Ladytron manages to grow and expand their sound with each new release.
Gene
From start to finish every track has a unique sound that is very different from anything that I heard on Witching Hour.
T. Garbushian
Helen's vocals is a nice contrast to the often monotonous vocals of Mira Aroyo.

Last weekend I was at my favorite record store when I took a listen to the new Ladytron cd VELOCIFERO. I always wanted to hear their music but never had the opportunity until now. Needless to say I ended up leaving the store with VELOCIFERO in hand. I haven't been able to stop listening to VELOCIFERO since last weekend. Normally I am not into the sort of dance music Ladytron makes but I really enjoyed all 54 minutes. VELOCIFERO reminded me a mish mash of Lush, My Bloody Valentine, and Goldfrapp from their BLACK CHERRY era. The song that convinced me was "Ghosts". Helen Marnie reminded me of the women from the Lush with her sweet, intoxicating yet eerie vocals. Helen's vocals is a nice contrast to the often monotonous vocals of Mira Aroyo. I enjoyed all of the songs on the album but my personal favorite song on the album has to be "Versus". I love the male/female vocals, plus I find the song irresistably infectious. I definitely consider VELOCIFERO one of my top ten favorite albums of 2008.

I like this album and I would never say anything against this band's talent and creativity as one of the few "pop" bands for mature music listeners. All of the Ladytron electroclash and new wave pop elements are here...but The previous album (The witching hour) was just so, so, so much better. All in all, I enjoy this recording (Velocifero) but it is only my third favorite album to date by Ladytron.

I heard the prerelease of Black Cat and I was hooked on this album. I could not wait for it to come out. While I was waiting I bought Wiching Hour which is also fabulous. I can listen to this record over and over, it never burns out. I am listening to it right now as I write this review. It is a wonderful combination of Gothic, Techno, Electro Pop, and a lushness that only Ladytron has. I highly recomend this album. It is going on my list of best records of 2008.

If you ever thought hmm...female voices with Depeche Mode.
This is the scenario: Hooks, firmly in place, mikes and synths plugged with amps set at '11'... place the needle at the beginning of "Burning Up". And there you go and you're welcome.
Oh yeah, the rest of the album rocks, too.

Let me preface this review by saying that pre-Velocifero I considered myself just a casual Ladytron fan. 604, Light & Magic, and Witching Hour were decent albums to be sure, but they weren't albums I could see myself playing over other albums in my collection. *This is often a dilemma when one owns a lot of music.

In early May, my friends told me they were going to see Ladytron at the Henry Fonda in Hollywood and they wanted me to go. Once again, being just a casual Ladytron fan I wasn't too excited about the prospect of seeing them live. But then I found out that Datarock was in the line-up and that was all the motivation I needed.

At that time I had no idea that Ladytron was releasing a new album. Obviously, it makes sense that they would go on tour with the pending release of a new album, but I didn't put 1+1 together at the time. Consequently, I went to this concert with no knowledge of their new album. And looking back, that was a good thing.

I'm just going to lay it all out right here... Ladytron blew me away. Seriously, they were without a doubt one of the best live acts I've ever seen... and I've seen dozens of live Indie acts. Ladytron is a band one needs to see live to really understand and appreciate. They recreated every digital sound with a live instrument. And their theatrics, lighting, and showmanship were some of the best in the business.

Now, onto the album... Velocifero is by far my favorite Ladytron album. To me it's the perfect hybrid of Light & Magic and Witching Hour. It's that Ladytron album I've been waiting for. But since I saw most of the songs performed live before I heard the album, Velocifero has a special place in my heart.

I continue to be impressed by Ladytron and the consistent quality of their recordings. "Velocifero" is very similar in sound to "Witching Hour", but in my opinion more consistent and catchier. No, it does not break any bold new musical ground or mark a different direction. But why should it? There's plenty of room for a high-quality album of 13 hook-laden tracks full of signature electro beats and fuzzy riffs. I'd be hard-pressed to name a dud song on here and equally hard pressed to pick my favorite, although I do find the novel duet "versus" that closes out the album careening through my head the most. If you enjoyed "Witching Hour" you have nothing to fear from "Velocifero".

Let's examine the elements that make Velocifero one of 2008's most essential albums; densely layered electronic stanzas, haunting-yet-endearing vocals, infectious grooves and captivating hooks. While Ladytron's fourth album may be their most accessible to date, don't think that the Liverpool electronica outfit have dumbed down their sound for mainstream acceptance. All the attributes of the band's previous work is again utilized on Velocifero to great effect. The album is affluent with the group's patent analog synth programming, subtly tinged with distortion and embellished with a healthy amount of bass, and the 13 tracks therein are enlivened by tactful melodies without being overtly poppy. Vocalist Mira Aroyo again delivers Bulgarian lyrics in a sultry monotone while co-frontwoman Helen Marnie's girlish vocals are as enamoring as ever. Moreover, Velocifero is abundant with memorable elements like the new-wave keyboard arpeggio which electrifies Black Car, the groove-laden bassline of Ghosts and the sweeping, dramatic ascent of Runaway. Driven by mystery, melody, and danceable beats, Velocifero has "Electronic Album of the Year" written all over it in bold letters.
