“Join our group and you will find / harmony and piece of mind”.
It used to be that Goldfrapp made music so sexual you’d worry about catching an STD. Now with the release of this second single from their Seventh Tree album, the closest you’ll get to the clap is the happy-clappy variety. With its sunshine melodies and group vocal harmonies Happiness sees Alison ditch her knee-high leather boots in favour of white robes and sandals (metaphorically speaking). Still there’s plenty to enjoy about this upbeat journey into The Polyphonic Spree’s spiritual zone.
