Welcome back, Goldfrapp and your massive throbbing synths

After four years' absence, Goldfrapp are back with a sultry, throbbing new single that recalls the pomp-and-stomp of songs like Train and Strict Machine.

With flagrant disregard for the Oxford English Dictionary, the song is called Anymore, with Alison purring: "Make me a freak / I can't wait any more," over a slippery, seductive synth line. Like all of music's best songs, it's a hymn to the dancefloor... Or "your strange music, like lucid dreams," as Alison would have it.

It's the best thing they've done since the last thing they did.

Can't wait for the new album - Silver Eye - which is due in March, and is co-produced by John Congleton (St Vincent, Sleater Kinney, Nelly Furtado). They'll be performing a special show at London's Roundhouse on the 27th of that month. See you there.
