    The Cocteau Twins were a Scottish rock band active from 1979 to 1997, known for innovative instrumentation and atmospheric, non-lyrical vocals. The original members were singer Elizabeth Fraser, guitarist Robin Guthrie and bassist Will Heggie, who was replaced by multi-instrumentalist Simon Raymonde in 1983.

    While the entire band earned much critical praise, Elizabeth Fraser's distinctive soprano vocals received the most attention. At times barely decipherable, Fraser seemed to veer into glossolalia and mouth music.

    Head over Heels is the second album by Scottish musical group Cocteau Twins. The album was released in October 1983, and was their first album as a duo.

    Critical recognition Head Over Heels has received include a #7 placing in Sounds magazine's End of Year List for 1983 and in 2003 the album was named one of the most eccentric British albums of all time by Mojo magazine.
