Ellie Goulding’s name is flying about everywhere, shes set to be the next big thing. She seems to have started as a folk singer songwriter, resembling the likes of Laura Marling, but she has become something much different. Now a very unique electronic pop act, showing glimpses of Florence and Little Boots but with many of her songs still in the folk style, a word I have heard used to describe her is folktronic, that’s a new one. She has a rather sweet, but powerful voice and some incredibly catchy songs. I predict big things. There are some lovely things of her floating around the internet, my favourite is a Bon Iver cover of Wolves which you can download below. There is also one of the nicest songs of heard I have found, a song called Roscoe, live on BBC6 music. Last week on iTunes her song ‘Wish I Stayed’ was single of the week, its also very good. Gutted for you if you missed it. This is a video of her single ‘Under the Sheets’ live on Jools Holland.
and i had to add this, Wow!
Enjoyy 🙂 and Have a wonderful New Year!
