NEWS: Ladytron release ‘Faces’ single ahead of ‘Time’s Arrow’ album and tour

Liverpool’s iconic synth quartet Ladytron have just released ‘Faces,‘ the third single from their highly anticipated seventh studio album ‘Time’s Arrow’.

‘Faces’ takes its title from the Cassavetes‘ film of the same name. Over an echoing disco soundscape, the track evokes bittersweet longing and euphoric escape, with expansive synth heavy production recalling 1970s euro diva Amanda Lear.

Faces‘ follows the first two singles from the upcoming album Time’s Arrow, ‘City of Angels’ and ‘Misery Remember Me,’ with City of Angels currently on the BBC 6 Music Playlist.

 ‘Time’s Arrow’ is set for release via Cooking Vinyl on 20th January 2023, followed by UK tour dates in March and US dates in May.

Beauty, disposability and fragility of the culture that surrounds us, and the exhilaration of freeing yourself from those structures are themes that Ladytron return to on their upcoming album Crystalline melodies, enveloped in icy textures and rippling arpeggios, shoegaze, disco, and industrial sounds that blend in their signature electro pop style.  

The mood of Time’s Arrow is strangely optimistic, freeing and utopian When asked “Have they left dystopia behind?” Helen Marnie replied, “We’re already there.” 

Forming in Liverpool in the late 90s and taking their name from the gloriously blank Roxy Music track, Ladytron’s debut album 604 was released a year ahead of 2002’s Light&Magic with Witching Hour in 2005. The group were lauded as leaders of the new electro pop and electroclash scenes then flourishing, and Light&Magic went on to be influential, for both independent and mainstream electronic pop music which followed.

Next up was 2008’s Velocifero, before 2011’s more serene, dreamy Gravity the Seducer and the cue for a deserved break which lasted years longer than imagined. Along the way, they wrote and produced for other artists, including Lush and Christina Aguilera. The group reconvened in 2019 for an album which Q Magazine called “near perfection” Upcoming Album, Time’s Arrow is out on 20th January on Cooking Vinyl followed by a UK and US tour.
