New York, NY, November 29 – Synthpop quartet Ladytron release “Far From Home,” the latest single from their eponymous sixth album which is set for release on February 15. “Far From Home” follows the enthusiastically received “The Island” and “The Animals” which ended the band’s seven-year hiatus.

With its lyrical intrigue and spectral harmonies floating along on an urgent modulating bassline, “Far From Home” is opaque, nonchalant, and very Ladytron, with a vocal evoking escape to a mysterious destination.
“We wave bye bye to the city, its rarity and energy. From the East is how we’ll come, just like the sun, as it breaks the canopy. The weaponry, ideas, flames and reverie…” they sing, as the track builds to a celestial climax.
“Far From Home” is the latest example of Ladytron’s signature mix of blissful electronic pop suffused with unusual themes. “Alongside a few others, it’s perhaps the most distilled Ladytron moment on the record,” says Daniel Hunt. “This was one of the tracks which sounded most like “us”. It is more refined, and vocally more complex but feels most intrinsically us somehow.” The song will be accompanied by a new short film directed by Fernando Nogari, who directed the “The Animals”.Earlier this month, Ladytron played a handful of UK dates. “It was wonderful to be back playing live together again after so long. The three shows went great, we all went away smiling, and it was of course important to see audiences again, some of them would have never been able to see us before,” says Daniel. The Electricity Club agreed, stating that the shows were , “… a reminder of how important they were during the early years of the electronic renaissance – and how important they remain as we look to the next decade of music.”

Distilling twenty years of experimentation into one propulsive album, Ladytron’s new album again pushes the boundaries of electronic pop in invigorating directions with thirteen songs that explore the disquiet of our times. Loaded with their trademark analogue synths propelled by relentless rhythm, Ladytron is the band’s most definitive work, a hypercharged album full of catchy hooks, rousing riffs, sweeping melodies, and thick textured harmonies that radiates a visceral urgency.
Helen Marnie says, “For us, it’s like getting together with an old friend. You’ve both changed, but still have that common ground. Familiarity crossed with excitement.”  “It’s diverse and emotional,” Daniel Hunt adds. “It’s a lot heavier than Gravity, which was an intentionally more sedate, ethereal record. The atmospheres are there, but there’s more urgency underneath.” The album also features guest Iggor Cavalera (Sepultura/Mixhell/Soulwax) on drums.
Ladytron will be announcing US tour dates shortly.

‘The Island’ Film

Ladytron Premiere “The Island”, a “Magnificent Short Film” (CLASH Magazine)
Visual for Second Single from Forthcoming LP Explores Dystopian Themes
“An intense yet beautifully shot clip, it’s a sign that Ladytron don’t just want to match past glories – they want to surpass them.”
New York, NY, September 5, 2018 — Today, Ladytron premiere their short film for “The Island,” the second single from their forthcoming LP via CLASH Magazine featuring an interview with band members Daniel Hunt and Helen Marnie. The eerie and striking short film is directed by Bryan M. Ferguson, whose film “The Misbehaviour of Polly Paper Cut” opened for David Lynch’s “Blue Velvet” at David Lynch: Painting in Perpetual Motion.
Reminiscent of works by Chris Cunningham (Aphex Twin) and Jonathan Glazer (Under the Skin), and shot in Glasgow, “The Island“ explores the story of a humanoid who awakens, escapes, explores, and is ultimately destroyed. The unnerving images in the short film echo the song’s haunting chorus, icy synthesizers, emphatic drums, and menacing Italo-electro backdrop.
Bryan M. Ferguson, comments: “It implicitly examines today’s current climate and where we’re headed. It explores the alienation and tyranny that we’re forced to swallow on a daily basis. It also offers a sharp commentary on our dual human nature and our present social environment. Overall, the film is a nihilistic look at society’s lack of progress.”
Last month, Helen Marnie who penned the song’s lyrics gave further insight in an exclusive interview with PAPER on how her personal discomfort shaped the making of “The Island” and why there’s a disparity between our actions and our intentions.
Following a seven-year hiatus in March, Ladytron made a triumphant return amid critical acclaim with their lyrically and visually haunting first single, “The Animals.” “The Island” shows again why that praise has been deserved and heightens the anticipation for the release of their full length album in early 2019.
“The Island” is out now and comes with an exclusive non-album track “Tropic of Capricorn”. The single is available on clear, seven-inch vinyl via Pledge.

New single: ‘The Island’

Ladytron Delve into Disquiet on “The Island”
Second single from forthcoming LP embraces rather than escapes from our modern fears.

“The Island” intentionally affords space for crescendoing emotional effect” – Paper Mag

New York, NY, August 16, 2018 — ‘The Island,’ the second single from Ladytron’s upcoming album, finds the synth-pop quartet in fighting form.

The euphoric song opens with a meditation on desolation —“Farewell, farewell dreams we once knew” — chilly Italo synthesizers and emphatic drums that swirl into a driving, haunting rallying cry. The Island is lyrically expansive, both autobiographical and social, and narrates the disquiet we all feel. “These past two years, during which we’ve been making this record, have been an accelerating turmoil, traumatic for everyone,” Helen Marnie explains. “I think only by confronting and embracing this reality do we stand a chance of getting beyond it”.

“Tropic of Capricorn” will be an exclusive physical release as a B-side of the 7 inch single of “The Island.” It will not appear on any other physical version of Ladytron’s album. It will also be available for stream and download via Pledge Music as the B-side of “The Island”.

This past March, Ladytron made a triumphant return amid critical acclaim after a seven-year hiatus with their first single, “The Animals”. The single “wowed” Wired, Post-Punk called it “an infectious nihilistic fever dream,” while Stereogum characterized it as ”a potent combination of smeary dream-pop and futuristic robo-music.” Rolling Stone mentioned it’s “punchy, breathless chant,” and Flood who originally premiered “The Animals” described it as “a hallucinatory track of primitive synths and angelic harmonies, with lyrics considering our more savage instincts.”

With “The Island,” Ladytron continue to explore our personal, and social hopes and fears amidst tumultuous times with all the prowess and complexity that have made them one of the world’s most unique and compelling bands.

Single released Friday August 17, 2018 via Pledge Music.
