Alison Goldfrapp released her debut solo album earlier this month.
Dates have been arranged in Manchester, Glasgow, Leeds, Birmingham, Bristol and London in support of a record which Live4ever’s review praised for, ‘casting a disco spell which you won’t want to be broken’:
Whereas in the previous incarnation the emphasis was on constant evolution from the S&M electroclash of Black Cherry through Seventh Tree’s Pagan folk and beyond, the new brief is to head straight for the nearest party and soundtrack the hell out of it. The even better news is that Ms. Goldfrapp is available for an immediate start, opener NeverStop’s shimmering bass pops and gossamer harmonies pressing the button marked diva almost as if there was never any choice.
“The vibe is in trying to recapture the freedoms not caring about the future gave, Alison Goldfrapp confessing that the experience, ‘Makes me think of shiny cars, and that rush of energy and elation you have as a teenager’.”
