English electronic music band Ladytron have released five studio albums, one live album, seven compilation albums, six extended plays, 18 singles, one promotional single, one video album and 15 music videos. Formed in 1999 in Liverpool, Merseyside,[1] the band consists of Helen Marnie (lead vocals, synthesisers), Mira Aroyo (vocals, synthesisers), Daniel Hunt (synthesisers, electric guitar, vocals) and Reuben Wu (synthesisers).[2]

The band's sound blends electropop with new wave and shoegazing elements. Ladytron have described their sound as "electronic pop".[3] They focused on a balance between pop structures and experimental sounds. Some of the group's songs performed by Aroyo contain lyrics written in her native Bulgarian.

Ladytron took their name from the 1972 song of the same name by Roxy Music.[4] Former Roxy Music member Brian Eno has described Ladytron as "the best of English pop music".[5]
