Ladytron recently remarked (via their Twitter account) that, with Liverpool having been awarded Eurovision hosting duties next year, they were ready to enter 2023’s song contest. I can’t tell whether or not they were being serious – but why not? On the strength of new single City of Angels – their first new music since 2019 – the band only emphasises their appeal to many different tastes.

Respected and critically acclaimed by those in the know, they also have their fair share of floor fillers – aware or not, you will have danced along to something from their impressive back catalogue. Recently celebrating the twentieth anniversary of their 2002 LP Light&Magic, Ladytron are enjoying a bit of a moment: last year saw the brilliant Seventeen occupy top 10s globally (thanks to going viral on short-form video platform, TikTok), reminding us why we fell in love with the band all those years ago.

Hearing City of Angels – featuring Ladytron’s classic driving, icy rhythms – serves to whet appetites. And fans can look forward with confidence to the January 2023 release of new album, Time’s Arrow which, we’re told, addresses themes of: “Beauty, disposability and fragility of the culture that surrounds us, and the exhilaration of freeing yourself from those structures.” Bring it on.
