"WHAT WE do is rent a funny little chintzy house in a little village near Bath," explains Alison Goldfrapp of her group's creative process. "We fill it with all our toys, and it's just me and Will. Nick Batt our drum programmer comes in to help us with our drums, because neither of us are too hot on that sort of thing. And thats it then; we produce and write it."
Since coming off the road last August, Ms Goldfrapp and partner Will Gregory have ben writing and recording their third album. Although Alison is in charge of the lyrics ("I've been trying to get Will to write some, unsuccessfully so far"), the music is co-conceived. "We like putting things together that maybe you shouldn't put necessarily together," she says.
Although slightly phobic about "proper" studios, the band are currently mixing their untitled third album at Olympic Studios in London. Those intrigued by the mélange of electronic beats, glam rock and half-woman/half-beast sauciness of their second album Black Cherry, will be conforted to know that the third album promises to be more of the same, with extra twists. Will there be more neo-glam rock? "We had fun with that on the second record, so we've explored it a bit more with lots of cheeky, fuzzy, synth sounds and lots of synthesizers that probably sound like guitars on first hearing. You know, there are so many guitar bands around, we don't need to join in on that one.
"There are a few things on the album that, in a weird kind of way, take on Felt Mountain, but in a different way, things like White Horse and You Never Know. They're sort of desolate but at the same time positive, sort of gloomily euphoric.
"I suppose what we do is sort of pop music", concludes Alison.
"We're on the fringes of being very pop, but then again not. Radio definitely has a problem with us. Fortunately we're on a label where you don't get binned if you haven't had a Top 20 hit in three months." David Buckley

The buzz : "It sounds like somewhere between New York, Berlin, and north-east Somerset, or maybe cold crumpets and bubbles. Or even euphoric crumpets." Alison Goldfrapp
