Goldfrapp - Alive
It's been awhile since I've gotten into Goldfrapp. A big fan of their first release Felt Mountain, they lost me a bit with their sophomore album Black Cherry (though, several years ago I was known for getting all too drunkenly dance-happy to Tiptoe, from that same offering). Alive comes courtesy of the duo's fifth studio album Head First and if it's as infectiously fun as this single, I just might have to take another crack at their 80's style synths. Alive's sonic world of happiness and brightness is offset in it's video by a darker, demonic world inspired by heavy metal bands and the music video for Olivia Newton-John's Physical of all things. Laser beams, aerobicizing satanists, neon coffins and hot, dancing vampire chicks, culminating with lead singer Alison Goldfrapp resembling Delphine Seyrig's Countess Bathory from 1971's Daughters of Darkness...what's not to love?
