This is what I like to see, a new style of music being experimented with and Ellie Goulding, with the help of Frankmusik, is certainly breaking the mould of generic singers.
At the age of 22, she has not only won the Critic’s choice award at the Brits, but she has also be named number one for the BBC sound of 2010, as announced this morning. With the previous winners being the likes of, Mika, Adele and Little Boots, she has a lot to live up to, but she is already proving she is more than just a pretty face from Herefordshire. Her debut single “Under the sheets” uses a mixture of folk, electronic and pop to create a unique sound that compliments her amazing voice. Her debut album, “Lights” is due to be released on 1st March and judging by her debut single and the fact she has already performed in Later with Jools Holland, Ellie Goulding is surely going to be the name on everyone’s lips in 2010.
Her debut single is available for download from iTunes or you can listen to it from her myspace page as well as a few other tracks, so go and have a listen and tell me what you think of this new artist.
