It seems as if every other group has adopted the synth-pop sound these days, which could be good news for Ladytron, who were doing this kind of thing before The Bravery were twinkles in a marketing man's eye. Destroy Everything You Touch is a taster of the band's forthcoming third album, and could well be their passport into the big time.
For the sometime Venini member Danny Hunt has created a sparkling pop gem here - unlike a lot of their contemporaries, there's a real heart and soul behind Ladytron's synth sheen and Destroy Everything You Touch has a real sense of passion lurking beneath the surface. It's as catchy as hell too, with that relentless chorus effortlessly burying its way into the listener's brain.
There's been quite a word of mouth building up around Ladytron recently and this is the perfect chance to check out why they're so highly regarded.
