Writing this story, we have the strongest urge to go to a spa for a massage. A legit one, even!
That’s because we’re listening to Tales of Us, the latest album from Goldfrapp and its soothing melodies and introspective lyrics are making us relax to a point of near-nap. Except we’re too transfixed with the music to dare fall into a momentary slumber.
As ethereal as anything they’ve ever recorded, every track is as hauntingly beautiful as it is almost indescribably soul-touching.
Written and produced by band members Alison Goldfrapp and Will Gregory, Tales of Us was recorded at their studio in the English countryside and somehow knowing that brings an extra depth to the listening experience.
Simply put, it’s pure musical poetry.
