Ladytron are back!
It’s been seven years since the band released their last album ‘Gravity the Seducer’ all the way back in 2011, but now they’ve returned with a brand new track! They’ve shared ‘The Animals’, a mix of robotic electronic pulses and dream-pop melodies that, as reported by Stereogum, was recorded by Jim Abbiss, who also worked on their 2005 album ‘Witching Hour’. It’s a mix of the harsh and the hazy that feels like classic Ladytron.
The band are currently raising money for a new album via a Pledge campaign and are planning to release another single in the summer. On the Pledgecampaign, the band say that the method is “a way to record a new album with the direct participation of their audience”.
Listen to ‘The Animals’ below.
