Frou Frou

A collaboration between musician/vocalist Imogen Heap and producer/arranger/songwriter/musician Guy Sigsworth, Frou Frou manufactured an impressive brand of vocal-driven, electronic pop formerly the exclusive territory of Björk. The British duo had been collaborating for years without a record deal, and after what must have been countless hours matching Sigsworth's studio finesse and trickery with Heap's breathy yodel, the group's debut, Details, was completed for American release on MCA Records in 2002. Heap and Sigsworth first worked together on "Getting Scared" from Heap's 1998 solo record iMEGAPHONE. After completing the promotion for that splendid debut, Heap was ready to begin work on a new project and the two hooked up again as Sigsworth had privately been compiling music specifically for Heap while producing other projects. The first track conceived by the new, more formal (but as yet unnamed) pairing eventually turned into "Flicks" from Details, perhaps Frou Frou's most Björk-reminiscent number. Sigsworth -- who had in fact worked with Björk (Homogenic, Vespertine) and Madonna ("What It Feels Like for a Girl") among many other significant '90s pop and electronic artists -- grew up listening to eclectic female artists like Kate Bush, and along with Heap, developed an appreciation for classical music. Far from being the kind of campy moniker one might expect from a more sugary pop outfit, the name Frou Frou was decided upon when Francophile Sigsworth noticed the phrase in a Baudelaire poem. Apparently, when uttered in French, the phrase is meant to approximate the swishing of skirts as they swirl about the legs of comely dancing women, as in a burlesque performance. Born composers, multi-instrumentalist Heap and studio/sound/ producer/musician Sigsworth are credited with many side appearances in support of other artists, especially Sigsworth, who was often used as a bit of a song-fixer. While those aren't bad jobs to have, artists of Frou Frou's caliber need to step out on their own, and while Heap worked as a solo artist for a majority of her career, Sigsworth had never been so strongly identified with any previous project. Instead of relegating the male producer/writer to a barely credited back seat, as often happens with a female-fronted team effort (for example, Glen Ballard's participation on Alanis Morissette's Jagged Little Pill), Frou Frou was conceived and honestly portrayed as a true collaboration, making it significant for its marketing truthfulness if nothing else. Details has some relatively conventional pop moments like "It's Good to Be in Love," but more experimental cuts like "Only Got One" display a more definitive quality. The true accomplishment of Frou Frou -- which is in evidence on just about every track the "band" created -- is their uncanny ability to infuse highly manipulated, digitally crafted music with a warmth quite rare in pop and almost unheard of in music so technologically progressive. In the studio, Frou Frou achieved unique sounding beds for Heap's luscious voice via more-than-would-be-expected acoustic and natural instruments. These actual instrumental performances were recorded first, then heavily manipulated in an editing stage, giving the duo their own process and thus, their own sound. This approach made their music lush, dynamic, and more earthy when compared to typical electronic/dance and canned pop. ~ Vincent Jeffries, Rovi

Love her <3 Love this track <3
PEACE!!!!!!! ! ! !
Beautiful sound.
In the cut in the cut, rolling doobies up!
Great song & sound! Let's hope they come back with some more good music in the near future, :)
Now I get what the fuzz is about! :D LOL
This beautiful sound gives me the chills. Happy Birthday Monroe.
I turned 57 on this thanksgiving and let me tell you......I love this music and age less.......
Have I mentioned recently how much I adore Imogen?
I like this song, at first I thought what the f***, but as an emotional person. I get it. Peace
Love it!
I dance around in my yard on summer days to this song...
LOVE
Beautiful.

Frou Frou has the most soothing voice. The song Shh reminds me of my first love. Great to listen to when you're stressed and need to relax and get out of reality for a moment.
mmmhhhh
How does this song come up on Yoko Kanno?

Anything Imogen is hauntingly piercing and soulful I like the fact a lot of peeps don't get it because it makes it what it is, its too deep and too graceful and too real for a lot of people! Its not some cookie cutter main stream pop thing and the vast number of instruments involved well mixed cannot say enough about her and her collaborator s . Bravo! Bravo!
Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of you life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in 2 days. Now you've started reading so don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in 143 minutes. When done press f6 and your lover's name will come on the screen in big letters. This is so scary because it actually works
Dayum broad...it's called a skip button. Try it and like it!
she sounds like she has bad azma and is high shut the f**k up this s**t
Beautiful music!!❤❤❤

Oh, it's so amazing here. It's all right 'cause there's beauty in the breakdown...
jshouse68
The fact that my 10 year old digs her,that she likes real music instead of all that other crap kids listen to these days,makes me very happy.

@psychicjunk i e b y - p r o x y because it's a collaboratio n you f**king idiot




Loved and met my college love of 30 years ago via a sent Frou Frou song. Two years later still together. Life is great when you remember the emotion of love. Thank you Frou Frou.
This is the first time i heard her. Shes amazing! Her voice sounds so innocent yet so tainted. I love it!
Can't wate to listen to ohn Hobbit! Love it - seriuslee
This is a pretty song........ . . . . . . I like the words and it has a catchy beat
At first, to me it sounded like she was a female Micheal Jackson. Not to dis him, i just hate rock. After the second time listening i became drawn to it. Florence Welch is still my fav though.
Love This Song

I like the wall of text, could not force myself to read it however. Seems to me that a professional music reviewer could use paragraphs and punctuation to make this readable.
Thought I heard Imogen Heap's vocals.
mailtogeorge w r i g h t
10 years her fan from the moment I heard Frou Frou in a cafe in Brooklyn (now that's a magical voice). No matter how much I listen to Imogen's voice I never get tired of it. Just for now live performance. . . . OMG INSANELY TALENTED WOMAN! . Sampling and harmonizing her voice right on the spot.... CRAZY TALENTED! Voice is so smooth, soulful and inspirationa l . Just Delicious
The Shrek 2 soundtrack brought them to my attention, and Pandora has really made me love them.

Also see 'Imogen Heap', Frou Frou's lead singers' solo project.
Love it!

Imogene's sound is soulful, rich, and insightful. Great lyrics and voice.
I love this song...found it on my Sia station
Loved her from the start. Wish she would make another album.
Same here, except different station. She came up on my Gotye station but I guess the sound is a little similar?
monkeyman087
this is an awesome song. but it got on my utada hikaru station....? ? ?
paws12321
I heard this and I was like That sounds EXACTLY like Imogen Heap o.O Then I read the bio :P
its good fo sho!
I think I just got shivers up my spine when I heard these guys! Awesome!
@animanga.k, @beringela91 : I just found Frou Frou via Yoko Kanno radio, a well-known composer of Anime soundtracks. The sounds are very similar, so I can see why they match. It makes me wish most Anime soundtracks were scored as well DURING each episode as they are during the open/close credits.

@beringela91 : oh my God, I know! I've always connected Let Go with anime opening songs!
