Goldfrapp - 'Tales Of Us'

Goldfrapp - 'Tales Of Us'

From fragrance ads to fashion shows, dancefloors to dinner parties, Goldfrapp were inescapable a decade ago. The cyber-glam duo fanned the dying embers of electroclash on albums like ‘Black Cherry’ (2003) and ‘Supernature’ (2005), and...

Goldfrapp - 'Drew'

Do you pine for the days of Zero 7’s ‘Simple Things’? Or those high times spending a fiver on Air’s ‘Moon Safari’ at the supermarket? Unfortunately Goldfrapp do, and on this first single from a new album they find themselves all...

Album Review: Goldfrapp - 'Head First' (Mute)

Goldfrapp - 'Head First' (Mute)

Whether they know it or not, many of this generation’s most magnetic pop artists are in hock to Alison Goldfrapp . Lily Allen , La Roux , Little Boots … all owe the frizz-haired synth dominatrix some artistic debt or other, and that’s...

10 Tracks You Have To Hear This Week (15/02/10)

Goldfrapp : Supernature

If Alison Goldfrapp ever was the girl next door, she obviously moved out to enrol in the Studio 54 School Of Disco Diva-ship some time ago. Here she commands – no, demands – attention. Continuing the dancefloor-friendly grooves of 2003’s...

Goldfrapp : Strict Machine

Another not-before-time rerelease When this single was first released last August, it got to Number 25. "How supremely rubbish," everyone must have thought. And yet! How also-very-fortunate: if it'd been any sort of proper hit then we might not...

Goldfrapp : Lovely Head/Pilots

The crazy success of former Tricky collaborator Alison Goldfrapp and her partner in trip-hop, Will Gregory, continues apace. Though thoughtlessly overlooked by the tofu-brained heroin addicts at the Mercury Music Prize, there's still no...

Goldfrapp : Utopia (Genetically Modified)

Goldfrapp : Utopia (Genetically Modified)

Despite the lingering suspicion that they make music solely for graphic designers, Goldfrapp's art-hop is undeniably enchanting. The Pet Shop Boys writing a West End musical is pretty great but imagine Ennio Morricone and Björk getting...
