to me LADYTRON are one of those transcendently great bands.
they came out of the ELECTROCLASH scene in the early 2000s but to me they went way beyond their peers. when they came out, at least to my ears, they had a real sense of escapism. this fit perfectly with me at the time since it served as the soundtrack for my late high school and early college years, a time period where geographically, socially, politically i felt completely thrown around. early LADYTRON albums like 604 and LIGHT & MAGIC were what i listened to as i hopped around on flights from EWR to FRA to KWI to LHR and beyond visiting my family overseas. to me they transcend geography, era and even electronic music itself.
i listen to their stuff now and it sounds timeless. just great pop hooks and really well-constructed, executed and produced pop music.
please check them out.
