Au Revoir Simone / Goldfrapp
I will keep this brief and to the point. I don’t traditionally like ‘pretty’ music, it is often too slow, dreary, or poncy (not the good type). These are two exceptions. The first is Au Revoir Simone – Backyards Of Our Neighbours, outstanding voice with soft floaty piano chords but there is still a subtle electronic hint.
My second choice is Goldfrapp’s A&E. I will relinquish my testosterone at this point and just say this is a beautiful song. Very similar to the last song in some respects. It is really gentle but with an intriguing touch of electricity.
