Music // Goldfrapp – Rocket

With their last album Seventh Tree, Goldfrapp ventured deep into the waters of delicate ambient folk but new single ‘Rocket’ heralds a return to the shores of electronic pop. The first taste of new album Head First is an upbeat dancefloor filler with a liberal dose of eighties about it, and a video to match. Some may point out a touch of GaGa, but it’s doubtable even that eccentric pop-dominatrix would come up with mummifying her ex in what looks like duct tape and strapping the poor bastard to a rocket. If nothing else, this video is certainly an ode to what can be done with some effort, little budget, and a bit of imagination.
