Thus the official bio of Alison Goldfrapp's band describes them perfectly: Glam-sex decadence, pioneering electronics, crystalline vocals and visual theatrics… the sound and vision of Art-Pop-Now... the crack of Marlene Dietrich's stiletto on Donna Summer's back… a thundering, sweat-lashed soundscape.

The songwriting duo of Alison Goldfrapp and Will Gregory has produced songs that have inspired remix requests from the likes of Marilyn Manson. Each successive recording has added a layer of stylistic mastery, from the edgy electronica of 'Felt Mountain' to the seductive and playful but ever-worldly songs of the newest album, Supernature.

The most recent concert tour features the band at their most dreamlike, with Alison accompanied by choreographed female dancers dressed as surreal characters, from Lovecraftian werewolves to mirrormasked horses.

The live band includes the very sexy and talented Angie Pollock on synthesizers, the brilliant electric violinist Davide Rossi, and the crack rhythm section of Rowan Oliver (drums) and Charlie Jones (bass).

To experience Goldfrapp is to be immersed in a world of moody melodies and dark sparkles.
