Cocteau Twins

Cocteau Twins Biography (Wikipedia)

Cocteau Twins were a Scottish rock band active from 1979 to 1997. They were formed in Grangemouth by Elizabeth Fraser (vocals), Robin Guthrie (guitars, drum machine), and Will Heggie (bass), with Heggie replaced by multi-instrumentalist Simon Raymonde in 1983.

The group has earned critical praise for their distinctive ethereal sound and the soprano vocals of Fraser, whose lyrics often abandon recognisable language. They have been recognised as pioneering the 1980s subgenre dream pop, and were associated with the British record label 4AD for much of their career.
