Goldfrapp – Caravan Girl

How rare. The rolling drums, the building, rhythmic chords and drop before the chorus. Upon reaching the chorus, the gearbox drops from fourth to third, the accelerate down and a change up to fifth once you’ve beaten the rest at the lights: Goldfrapp sound like U2 here.

The vocals are soft and pleasant and the song works on the above dynamic with none of the bite of a minimal Edge guitar overlay or a Clayton bass. The middle eight veers into Enya territory and then we’re back to something that could be Diet Angels and Airwaves.
