[Watch] Goldfrapp - "Alive"

Allison Goldfrapp is taking this whole 80s theme with Headfirst and RUNNING LIKE CRAZY with it. 

Goldfrapp posted on their Facebook page about an hour ago that VEVO is premiering their new video today and boy is it a doozy. 

It's a pretty hysterical video, totally retro'd out with an incredibly odd twist. 

The best way I've heard it described as is: it's an 80s aerobic vampire workout. 

Yes. It's weird. 

But really, if you chew a metal dudes jugular, does he REALLY bleed every color of the rainbow? 

Would love to hear your thoughts on this as I am very confused/entertained by this. 

[Watch] Goldfrapp - "Rocket"

It's finally been set free from the evil clutches of MSN! Ha ha! Just kidding! EMI has put this video on lockdown but you can check it out on the Mute Channel page. Above is the official music video for Goldfrapp's latest single, "Rocket" from their forthcoming album Head First. Thoroughly enjoying this video because for me life is nothing but 80s-sounding music and rocketships anyways. 

Kinda funny that this is being released months after Calvin Harris' "You Used To Hold Me" video. Who knew semi trucks were SO electro-awesome!? I sure didn't. 

I guess Calvin's is cooler because it has bigger wheels? Maybe that speaks to the heaviness of the song? 

Am I really trying to look for hidden meanings in music videos for electro-pop songs? 

 

Head First will be out on March 23rd, courtesy of Mute Records.
