Helen Marnie, Mira Aroyo, Daniel Hunt, Reuben Wu formed Ladytron in Liverpool, England in 1999.
They broke through in the early 2000s with the Light & Magic and Witching Hour albums. After five records and a succession of world tours over a ten-year period, Ladytron took a deserved pause, pursuing other projects, collaborations and creative endeavors, before finally deciding in 2016 to begin work on new music together. “The Animals” is the first fruit of this new chapter for the group.
Here, electronic pioneer Vince Clarke adds a new dimension with his remix. Opening with a sick yet flawless bassline, and stripping the shimmering keyboards of the original for a more menacing sound. The track, along with its original, is available exclusively through the band’s Pledge Music campaign for their forthcoming album. The campaign,, features deluxe versions of the album and other exclusive items including a limited seven-inch vinyl of the two versions of “The Animals.”
“The Animals” (Vince Clarke Remix) is available 5 March on Pledge Music PRE ORDER
