Date of establishing :
This English electronic duo, formed in 1999 in London, consists of singer-songwriter and musician Alison Goldfrapp
and musician/producer Will Gregory. Prior to the band, Alison guested as a vocalist and songwriter with Tricky, Orbital and Peter Gabriel, among others. Goldfrapp's
2000 debut album "Felt Mountain" featured minimalist electronic compositions that consisted of downtempo structures, classical sounding arrangements of strings and light, airy synths alongside Alison's sleek, soft vocals. The albums that followed, "Black Cherry" (2003) and "Supernature" (2005), have seen Goldfrapp
embracing elements of glam rock, dance and disco music, taking their sound to a wider audience. Usually associated with the electroclash movement, Goldfrapp
sometimes recalls 1980s new wave. In 2008, Goldfrapp
released a more ambient and "folktronica" sounding album "Seventh Tree". March 2010 sees the release of their latest album "Head First" which marks another change of direction towards electropop and 1980s synthpop.
