Ladytron : Seventeen

...perfect pop...

[a]Ladytron[/a]

could well be the 21st Century Ladytron[/a]’s favourite band, their last album ‘604’ did as much to spearhead electroclash as his ‘Kittens And Thee Glitz’. But [a]Ladytron[/a]

are too special just to slot into a movement.

‘Seventeen’ shows a band in total command of its voice; a moody, romantic synth pulse that makes you want to dress up, go out and have nocturnal adventures.

It’s a term debased, traduced and abused, but [a]Ladytron[/a]

are perfect pop.
