ellie goulding

Ellie Goulding — the rising British folktronic pop star is going to be huge in America fairly soon. This is not an original thought of mine; it’s pretty obvious as the buzz about this woman increases. Mostly via my Facebook feed.

My first experience with Goulding was her track, “Lights” — a synthed out pop jam that happens to be FIRE. After listening to this song an inordinate amount of times on repeat via Spotify, I decided to grab her album Bright Lights.

And this is where the British product outshines her American counterparts handily. The talent, depth, and bounciness  crosses through a spectrum of electronic genres and does so without overshadowing Goulding’s vocal talents. It’s all done with a balance that is unparalleled by any domestic artist. For comparison, this album reminded me a lot of Details by Frou Frou.
