Ladytron | GBR
Ladytron – a legendary British electro band that combines pop, synth wave, shoegaze, and avant-garde sound experiments. The band consists of Helen Marnie (lead vocals, synthesizers), Mira Aroyo (vocals, synthesizers), Daniel Hunt (synthesizers, guitar, vocals), and Reuben Wu (synthesizers). Ladytron is a prime example of how one can intelligently and originally combine the qualities of a hit with creative, artistic explorations. The band was formed in Liverpool in 1999 and is a direct reference to one of Roxy Music’s songs, one of the key inspirations for the artists. Brian Eno, who called Ladytron his favourite, described them as „the best of British pop music”. Trent Reznor also gave the band high praise when he invited them to open the European concerts of Nine Inch Nails in 2007. Joint tours with Bjork or Goldfrapp were also very successful. Over the years, the band has recorded seven studio albums, with the latest one, „Time’s Arrow,” having been released only a few months ago to enthusiastic reviews. At their upcoming concert in Lublin, the band will present material from this album, but hits from over 20 years of their career are sure to appear too.
