British Electro band Ladytron has returned and has released another single titled, “The Island” off of their forthcoming LP. “The Island” transports the listener to a fantasy world with 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”.
This past March, Ladytron made a triumphant return with their first single, “The Animals” after their 7 year long hiatus. “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.
