This week's #tbt we find ourselves traveling back to 2002, again, when the collaboration between music producer Guy Sigsworth and singer Imogen Heap took place - the duo took the name Frou Frou and produced their only album - Details. I can't remember how I stumbled upon this album but I recall trawling through every Musica and Look And Listen to find it - which I did, eventually... Imogen's singing voice reminds me so much of Dido, but just darker and slightly edgier. It is also one of those rare albums where almost every song is instantly likeable - so no having to skip songs.
According to Wikipedia their music falls under the genres of Electronica, Ambient and Trip-Hop.
What I like most about this album, apart from the obviously awesome music, is that these two people joined forces to create a piece of art and then they went their separate ways - apart from a forgettable cover they recorded for a movie soundtrack a few years later. There's not much in the way of official music videos available online but check the links below for some of the music from the album.
