Last year; Crystal World, the début album from Ladytron’s Helen Marnie turned out to be one of our favourite records of the year. It’s an LP that still gets a fair amount of play around these parts, so we never expected to get our first taste of Marnie’s album number two so soon, but here is Wolves, the first single from her sophomore release; due out next year.
Instantly more uplifting and optimistic that the content of Crystal World; Wolves, a track inspired in part but the forthcoming referendum on Scottish independence, is loaded with swelling chords and rousing choruses. Easing itself in with a growling, buzzing synth line, the track soon erupts into a rapturous choir of majestic synths and anthemic vocals. Marnie’s follow up album could turn out to be an entirely different beast.
