The Cocteau Twins are a Scottish dreampop, post-punk band that creates ethereal and enegmatic music. They heavily influenced 80's alternative rock, releasing over 15 albums over their 17 year career and inspiring numerous other 80s alternative groups. While not gaining profound mainstream success, the trio still maintains a faithful cult following. I find them remarkable for their utilizaztion of indistinguishable vocals, swirling guitar and synth, as well as Elizabeth Fraser's powerful voice. I would describe their music as celestial and iridescent, but their songs have a fuzzy, airy sound to them too, almost as if you are soaring in a dream. I had first heard their hit 'Heaven or Las Vegas' many years ago, but didn't start delving into their discography until 2 years ago. Upon hearing 'Frou-frou Foxes in Midsummer Fires', I fell instantly in love again and have been exploring their albums ever since. My favorite songs are Pandora, Lorelie, In Our Angelhood, Fifty-Fifty Clown, Frou-frou foxes, and In The Gold Dust Rush. My favorite albums are 'Heaven or Las Vegas' and 'Head Over Heels'.
