Lovely Head


This is like an old school torch song. It’s a glamorous song and a glamorous performance by Alison Goldfrapp. And a great example of modern technology being used to evoke something older. Goldfrapp used strings and harpsichord as well as synthesizers and vocal distortion to achieve the effect. To define Goldfrapp as an electronic music group is overly simplistic and doesn’t do justice to their eclecticism, but on the other hand, it’s a testament to the wide potential of what ‘electronic music’ can be.
