Goldfrapp have revealed the video for their latest single ‘Anymore’. The single is taken from their seventh studio album ‘Silver Eye’ which is released on March 31st through Mute (Gallo Record Company for South Africa).
Alison led the creative for all of the visuals on the album and played a crucial role in the direction of the video for ‘Anymore’. The surreal and elemental nature of the island along with striking choreography makes for an intriguing and beautiful contrast to the metallic nature of the track.
On making the video Alison said:
“The ‘Anymore’ video was shot on the strange & beautiful island of Fuerteventura. I love the volcanic rock and dunes which were also the setting for the still images I took.”
Goldfrapp follow up 2013’s album ‘Tales of Us’ with the deep, dark and electronic musical palette of ‘Silver Eye’, their brand new studio album, made with an eclectic collection of new collaborators. Alison and Will spent 10 days in Dallas with John Congleton, Grammy-winning producer of St. Vincent, John Grant and Wild Beasts. In London they teamed up with electronic composer Bobby Krlic, aka The Haxan Cloak. Brian Eno collaborator Leo Abrahams added abstract guitar textures. The album was mixed by David Wrench (The xx, fka Twigs, Caribou).
Alison headed to Fuerteventura, a volcanic island in the Canary Islands, to produce the remarkable visuals for the record, all of which were devised and shot by her. The black sands, stark cliffs, rolling dunes and blazing blue skies, captured in her own photographs, are a total complement to the elemental drama of the music on the album. Working with stunning twins who she spotted on the street in London, Alison created and shot a set of visuals that are as arresting as they are idiosyncratic. In demand more and more as a photographer, Alison has been commissioned for other projects in the past including shooting Laura Mvula live at Somerset House.
