Album Watch: She Wore A Yellow Halo
Monday, December 12, 2011
If my calculations are correct, Goldfrapp has been in the game for close to eleven or so years (!!!). It seems like it was just yesterday when Black Cherry, (my 'first' Frapp experience), invaded my ears to where I proceeded to get euphoric, embarrassing myself and others around me as I waved my hands around to the 'wonderful electric' sounds I heard. Auto-bio that.
So it is timely that the daring British Electronica duo would unleash a single compilation. Of course with a new compilation comes crisp n' fresh tunes to tack on the tracklist for an surfire purchase (because if you have all of Goldfrapp's albums---then there is no point, right?). Goldfrapp is at least making sure the duo of newness ("Yellow Halo" and "Meloncholy Sky") will do your ear drums good---and they are off to a worthy start with "Yellow Halo". Accompanied with a neat video highlighting Goldfrapp's tour stops in South America, "Yellow Halo" is a creamsicle dream of a song that goes back to the relaxing sounds on Frapp's Seventh Tree set. Satisfying it is.
Pop over the cut to experience the visual and audio wonderment of "Yellow Halo" as well as the tracklisting to The Singles, which will be hitting shelves in February of 2012.
