NEW ALBUM – TIME’S ARROW – OUT 20th JANUARY ON COOKING VINYL
NEW SINGLE – CITY OF ANGELS – OUT FRIDAY 14th OCT
UK TOUR MARCH 2023
Electronic pop quartet Ladytron announce their highly anticipated seventh studio album Time’s Arrow, with the brand new single City Of Angels online today. The album, set for release via Cooking Vinyl on 20th January 2023, will be followed by UK tour dates in March.
City of Angels is their first new music released since 2019. Over Ladytron’s insistent analogue backing, the song inverts sensuous imagery into a vision of a near future with a collapse of cultural memory. “It’s about forgetting,” says Daniel Hunt “…how fragile it is,” “…not about one particular place or other, but a merging of them.”
Beauty, disposability and fragility of the culture that surrounds us, and the exhilaration of freeing yourself from those structures… these are themes Ladytron return to on Time’s Arrow. Crystalline melodies enveloped in icy textures and rippling arpeggios, shoegaze, disco, and industrial sounds that combine in their signature electro pop style.
The mood of Time’s Arrow is strangely optimistic, freeing – utopian, even. Have they left dystopia behind? “We’re already there,” Helen Marnie points out.
