Seen & Heard: Goldfrapp
Goldfrapp has been in synth-pop overload for the past few years which is fine, but which has veered away from the otherworldly electro sounds of their first two albums and towards something deliberately kitsch. As they prep to release a greatest hits compilation, we're given the new, ultra chill "Yellow Halo" as the shiny new single. It suggests a push back in the direction of the old school. The song is lovely, but the video (shot entirely on an iPhone during the group's tour) is lovelier.
