Ladytron Plays Terminal 5 on Saturday Night

October 7th, 2011

Sometimes you want synthpop, but other times you want shoegaze rock. It’s a conundrum, but it doesn’t have to be because have we got a Venn diagram for you. That’s right, the electro quartet Ladytron—Helen Marnie (lead vocals, synthesizers), Mira Aroyo (vocals, synthesizers), Daniel Hunt (synthesizers, electric guitar and vocals) and Reuben Wu (synthesizers)—has been expertly combining the two genres since forming in Liverpool in the late ’90s. And since then, the band has released five albums, including Gravity the Seducer, which came out just a few weeks ago. With a new album, comes a new tour, and you can see Ladytron (above, doing “He Took Her to a Movie”) tomorrow night at Terminal 5.
