The strongest opening on Head First by a mile, Shiny and Warm throws Goldfrapp back into their Supernature territory of glitzy riffs and instant earworms.
Here, a strict bassline and marching beat are juxtaposed against slurred and breathless vocals that sound like the most seductive of pillow talk.
Again, this song benefits from a restraint that keeps it almost minimalist. We’re teased with the prospect of squelchy bass notes and Depeche Mode synth stabs but they’re quickly faded out.
Of course, part of the genius is we get all of them in abundance when Shiny and Warm blows up for the final chorus.
