Big things are ready to roll for Goldfrapp this year, with Melancholy Sky lighting the fuse this week and a Singles Compilation to follow in February. Currently working on a new album, which I have a sneaking suspicion will echo the best of Felt Mountain and Seventh Tree, Goldfrapp found time to slip this remix of Strict Machine through Pete Tong’s letterbox. More launch pad than rocket, it’s a bouncy mix, with stripped back vocals, aching with cool and probably their most credible visit to the dance floor yet.
Strict Machine (Jamie Jones mix)
Melancholy Sky (with a cool fan-made video to go with it)
Also released as a teaser, the sublime slow burner Yellow Halo complete with dreamy video
