With the imminent arrival of series three of Ashes To Ashes on BBC One, if you feel like easing yourself back into that 1980’s state of mind then Head First from electronic duo Goldfrapp will transport you back there.
Having burst on to the scene in 2000 with their avant garde debut album Felt Mountain, Alison Goldfrapp and Will Gregory have always experimented with varied musical styles across their previous four albums.
After the folk/electronica hybrid sounds of Seventh Tree (a personal favourite) Goldfrapp have returned to the pop sounds of Supernature, but with a retro twist. Album opener and first single Rocket is an up tempo dancefloor pleaser, other highlights include Believer, Alive and the title track.
This album will be quickly establishing itself in my iPod’s most played playlist.
Over all score 8 out of 10.
