Ladytron decided to spice up our Monday with a preview of their forthcoming album, Gravity The Seducer. The UK-based quartet (Daniel Hunt, Reuben Wu, Helen Marnie and Mira Aroyo) created a highly thematic album of "chapters", said to hold the entire LP together "like a book". We agree, the tracks are both intense and beat-heavy, guaranteed to jolt your week to life, and certainly seem to have a strange, yet definite relationship to one another. One thing is for sure: the texture and layers of synths and sounds have a definite gravitational pull on our ears. Feel free to get seduced below.
Hear Gravity The Seducer in its entirety all week, and a day before its official release tomorrow on Nettwerk Records.
