Interactive Interview: Ladytron Talk ‘Gravity the Seducer’


It’s a bit staggering to think of the number of bands — not to mention entire movements — that have seen their rise and fall since Ladytron released their debut album 604 in 2001. In the world of electronic pop, longevity is far from a common trait. However, a decade later, the quartet is not only still releasing gorgeously constructed analogue/digital musical hybrids, but doing so without a break or misplaced step. The traditionally black-clad foursome — Daniel Hunt, Reuben Wu, Helen Marnie, and Mira Aroyo — dropped their fifth album, Gravity the Seducer, last month; we caught up with Wu and Aroyo during soundcheck at New York’s Terminal 5 for our latest Flavorpill Interactive Interview, in which they talk about the record, the secret to long-term success, and how they found themselves in Ozzy Osbourne’s old house with Christina Aguilera.
