Mira from Ladytron talks about her work with The Maths

‘Working with John and Benge on the track ‘Watching A Building On Fire’ was really fun. I gave them a few riffs to choose from, they built a song around one of them and I went in to record vocals. I was pretty blown away by the studio. I hadn’t heard about it, though I think I might have seen it on TV, but not realized. It is a total treasure trove! I felt like I was in Charlie and the Synth Factory. Both John and Benge were really mellow and nice to work with. I loved how organic everything was recorded, from synths to vocal effects. I think that is quite rare in electronic music nowadays and you can definitely hear it in the finished record. I met John quite a few years ago. I was a fan of his first solo record and was asked by a magazine to interview him about his favorite sound. We got on and kept on bumping into each other here and there over the years. It was a real honor and a pleasure to collaborate with both of them. I look forward to working with them again.’ MIRA AROYO
