    Returning to form

    Brunch, Chanun Poomsawai, Published on 31/03/2019

    » It's hard to believe it's been nearly two decades since Ladytron unleashed its own version of electropop to the world. Hailing from Liverpool, the quartet of Helen Marnie, Mira Aroyo, Daniel Hunt and Reuben Wu first introduced themselves with their 2001 debut 604, a solid 16-track collection heavily influenced by the likes of Kraftwerk, New Order and Depeche Mode. In a period when the UK charts sounded a little uninspired (the No.1 singles ranged from JLo's Love Don't Cost A Thing to Limp Bizkit's Rollin' to Afroman's Because I Got High -- you get the idea), Ladytron's simmering cauldron of synth-pop and electro-industrial almost felt like an act of rebellion.

    » One recent morning at Nopphrat Thara beach, the high tide flooded the lower part of a strange, interwoven structure.

    The art of being

    Brunch, Chanun Poomsawai, Published on 14/10/2018

    » Having ditched her successful career as a young start-up CEO to pursue music independently, Peeralada Sukawat, mononymously known as Pyra, has a lot to prove both to herself and to her family, who'd rather she took up a 9-to-5 job. "It's more about self-actualisation. I want to see something I expect of myself happen. The more people tell me I can't, the more I want to do it," she asserted in her 2016 interview with the Bangkok Post's now-defunct Saturday supplement Muse, wherein she talked candidly about depression and her frayed relationship with her mother. The piece further illuminates her self-produced debut EP Stray, a stunning release that, while deservedly vouched for by Apple Music Thailand, somehow failed to woo a local radio station because "they couldn't figure out what category I fell into".
