Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Recording information: Elevator, Liverpool; Sahara Sound, London.
  • Photographer: Mira Aroyo.
  • Indie electro-pop outfit Ladytron turned in their most accomplished and realized effort with 2005's WITCHING HOUR. The heavy influence of early-'80s synth-pop is still prevalent here, though less so than on previous releases. Instead, WITCHING HOUR incorporates the aesthetics of New Order and Depeche Mode into a sound that also features elements of shoegaze and dream pop, making for an alluring, atmospheric vibe.
  • Ladytron's music is moody, with goth overtones, a feeling perfectly suited to their chilly synth-scapes and eerie melodies. Yet the group leavens these qualities with sharp songwriting, casting out hooky refrains that float on the voices of singers Helen Marnie and Mira Aroyo. All told, Ladytron mix classic elements of '90s indie rock with an updated, postmodern approach, making for dark, sophisticated contemporary pop.
Professional Reviews
Entertainment Weekly (No. 843, p.76) - "...[B]ristling guitars that anchor the most pneumatic of beats--and supremely catchy songs that pulse with life." - Grade: B+

Uncut (p.94) - 4 stars out of 5 - "[T]hey've hit upon a stunning marriage of shoegaze swoon and electro hauteur, oddly reminiscent of early-'90s misfits Curve."

Magnet (p.102) - "'Beauty*2' understands old-school electro's darkness so much that it can confidently twist it with a lullaby melody."
