Can we have a big, fat "wow!" please?
What a fresh and unexpected new Goldfrapp sound. After the disco stomp of "Supernature" and the introverted "Seventh Three," this new Goldfrapp tune sounds unlike like anything the duo has done before. Just how they like it, and just how their fans love them.
The mid-tempo "Rocket" reminds me of early '80s American synth-driven singer/songwiter pop. Very smooth and incredibly catchy. I'm not making a direct comparison but I totally get a Journey, Christopher Cross vibe from this. Delicious!
This year may finally be the year for Goldfrapp. And if Roisin Murphy could have an equally successful year then we can all say that 2010 was pretty darn great for crunchy electro-pop and sleep a little better at night.
