Ladytron, Light & Magic

By Myke Atkinson

The formular for making the best revival record the world will ever hear: Take cliche drum loops and throw on some crazy retro synth lines. Sprinkle on some quiet, repetitive, female vocal lines with a bit of flange and make sure that every song sounds like it was made in the ’80s by your favourite bands; Duran Duran and The Cure. Release an album called Light & Magic that sounds so full of poppy goodness, you might just develop an underground synth-pop revolution. Oh, and dressing up like you’re the next big thing doesn’t hurt either.
