Title : Goldfrapp – Seventh Tree. Format : Yellow Vinyl Record. Label : Warner Music / BMG. Barcode / Cat Num : 4050538626582
Release Date : March 5th 2021
After spending years on the dancefloor with Black Cherry and Supernature, Goldfrapp take a breather with Seventh Tree. Allison Goldfrapp and Will Gregory slow down the beats and break out the acoustic guitars on a set of songs that suggest chilling out in a field during a hazy, watercolor summer; this is music for after the party, not after-parties. Avoiding the glammy dance-pop of the duo’s previous two albums is a bit of a risk, since Goldfrapp could probably make endless variations on Ooh La La and still have plenty of fans. However, Seventh Tree isn’t so much a radical change for Goldfrapp as it is a shift in focus; even if it doesn’t sound glam, it sounds glamorous. Sonic luxury has been the only constant in the duo’s sound, from Felt Mountain’s darkly lavish soundscapes to Black Cherry and Supernature’s decadent dance hits, and there’s plenty of it here, too. Reissued on yellow vinyl in 2021.
