REC’D: New Goldfrapp – “Yellow Halo”

GOLDFRAPP THE SINGLES
Listen to our FAVORITE ALBUMS OF 2014. Make sure you don't miss any tunes: FOLLOW US ON TWITTER.

The electro-pop project of Allison Goldfrapp and her band will release The Singles, an impressive, career-spanning retrospective of their hits to date, on February 6, and it’ll also include two new songs, including the stunning “Yellow Halo,” which you can listen to now.

It’s a brilliant, nostalgic slice of sunlit pop glory, but even when Goldfrapp go for quasi-balladry they go for it in Goldfrapp style, what with throbbing bass backbeats, atmospheric vocal editing, and plenty of explosive synth bursts. The video, composed entirely of images from the band’s trip to Brazil, perfectly complements the song’s beautiful wistfulness. Watch it once, then close your eyes and give it another listen.
