"Drew," the single from Goldfrapp's upcoming album Tales of Us, is a mellow whirlpool of Alison Goldfrapp's whispered vocals and Will Gregory's plucked guitar with a hint of spaghetti western foreboding. It's far removed from the treacly synth-pop of Goldfrapp's previous Head On, and a promising foundation for what will be Goldfrapp's only U.S. performance this year (with Wordless Music Orchestra, who are sure to fill arrangements around Goldfrapps' singular ethereality with lush orchestral accents).
