Cocteau Twins was a Scottish Indie band formed 1983 in Grangemouth by Elizabeth Fraser, Robin Guthrie, and Will Heggie. Heggie was replaced by multi-instrumentalist Simon Raymonde in 1983. Cocteau Twins have one of the most distinctive sounds in rock music based on Fraser's ethereal vocals and their combination of guitar and synths. They were a very successful signing to the 4AD label and recognised as pioneers of "Ethereal Wave" and "Dream Pop". Their run of six albums released between 1983-1990 are all classics: Head Over Heals, Treasure, Victorialand, The Moon and the Melodies, Blue Bell Knoll and Heaven or Las Vegas.
