GoldfrappElectronic pop duo Goldfrapp are back! Alison Goldfrapp and synth man Will Gregory return with their long-awaited sixth studio album (due out late summer) and are headlining this Somerset House Summer Series gig in July. They've been on the music scene for over a decade, their 2000 debut album, Felt Mountain, was followed by a change of direction with their 2003 dance music hit Black Cherry. But even before that Alison Goldfrapp was providing the vocals for the likes of Tricky and Orbital. Key moments in Goldfrapp history include touring the States with Depeche Mode and a Grammy nomination for Best Electronic/Dance Album with 'Head First'. Their live shows are often visually arresting - while touring in 2004 Goldfrapp appeared in a white dress wearing a horse tail while backing dancers wore deer heads, and that was in the days before Lady Gaga had been invented.
