Personalities | Goldfrapp | Twenty-First Century | Rock

(Dance/vocal group, 1999–present)

Like Blondie before them, Goldfrapp are often mistaken for a mere solo artist. They are in fact a duo – captivating vocalist Alison Goldfrapp certainly steals the limelight, while Will Gregory dwells in the shadows on stage. Something of a mix between electro, burlesque, the surreal and good old-fashioned pop, their sound has evolved from the minimal neo-opera of debut Felt Mountain (2000) into a more seductive, synthetic hybrid – best exemplified by the chart friendly, and highly catchy ‘Ooh La La’ (2005).
