Journey to the 80s


Alison Goldfrapp once said she hated the 80s. Then I really wonder why the new Goldfrapp album Head First that will be released in March is full of mid and late 80s synth tunes. It really took me a while to get used to this as I’m not such a big fand of the 80s as well. My first reaction to the single Rocket that is already making the rounds on the interdolly was slight disappointment. But the song grew on me and now I find myself singing loadly on my way to the subway: “Ohoho, I got a rocket. Ohoho, you’re going on it.” More about the new album after the jump.


The rest of the album has pretty much the same style in sound and vocals, some songs a bit more mellow, some equally dancy, but 80s all the way through. The second song Believer which is surely going to be another single is also quite catchy. The rest I’m still working on.
