Ladytron electronica a tonic


VELOCIFERO, Liverpool-based Ladytron's fourth album, is the sound of a computer that's turned on.
Here the electro poppers have crossed sultry, sleazy vocals with mechanical drones and dark, industrial beats, while retaining adding an aloof air of mystery - for example on Kletva, which is sung entirely in Bulgarian.
The group have clearly picked up the baton of edgy, sexy, dancey, indie-y pop from Goldfrapp - who decided this year with Seventh Tree to go sunbathing instead.
In contrast Ladytron's Velocifero is music for the nighttime - and a dark night at that.
