Single Review: Goldfrapp – Anymore

Goldfrapp returns with electro banger ‘Anymore’
Fans of British duo Goldfrapp had to wait four years to finally hear some new music by their favourite act. Alison Goldfrapp and Will Gregory dropped their latest record Tales of Us back in 2013. The follow up, which is titled Silver Eye will be released on the 31st of March. First single ‘Anymore’ is out now and I am glad to report that this song was so worth the wait. And then some!

While Goldfrapp experimented with folky influences on their previous record, we can now expect something completely different again, Alison explains. “We’ve never liked repeating ourselves. Often we react to things we’ve just done. We like the spontaneity of not knowing. It’s only through the process that we start to figure out what it is. The fans who have stuck with us are the ones who embrace that idea and are excited by the thought that they don’t know quite what to expect next.”

If the first single ‘Anymore’ is anything to go by, then Silver Eye will be deep and dark electro! The track opens with heavy synths and deep beats over which Alison sensually sings how she ‘can’t wait anymore’. The build up here is flawless and there is so much detail in the production that unfolds with every listen. The last chorus gets elevated by some glorious ad libs, which gives the track a little disco twist. Goldfrapp is back and they mean business!
