Goldfrapp - "Everything Is Never Enough" (Singles Going Steady)

by PopMatters Staff

4 October 2017

 

Adriane Pontecorvo: Wild, wild nihilism with a rush of pulsing synths and incredibly catchy dance beats. Lyrically, it’s a song that has given up on the future (“Living like there’s no tomorrow / We are here in the future past”), but melodically, it feels more like it’s simply shed its temporal and physical constraints, and is rocketing into the stars, ready to fly forever. Goldfrapp expertly balances crisp sound quality and computer-softened vocals for a dreamy club feel and that makes the wasteland seem like a happening place to be. [9/10]
