Goldfrapp is on a whole new health kick. After drinking down their breakfast smoothie of Olivia Newton-John and Hall & Oates, they take their purple Van Halen “Jump” pills and don spandex and sweatbands for an hour long work out with Jane Fonda. They must be getting fit for Xanadu. “Rocket” is the duo’s propulsive new single that’s a glorious rush of synth euphoria from their new and 5th LP Head First out now. With breathy fantasy, Alison Goldfrapp sings about taking you on her rocket and never letting you come down. It’s the kind of song that makes you feel like there’s a wind machine running through your hair or you’ve just eaten a Peppermint Pattie. The remixes are absolute giddy good fun. Tiesto turns out seven plus minutes of pure disco anthem pleasure. Richard X, Penguin Prison and Grum all stab and succeed at glittering, swirly, splashed-out, high 80′s pumpers.
MAXI EXCLUSIVE: Ralphi Rosario Vox, Dub and Radio Edit are brand spanking new.
