Bright young talent Ellie Goulding has been making waves since early this year after taking out both the BBC Sound of 2010 poll and also the Critics Choice Award at the Brits. Although this pop starlet initially had her head amongst the clouds of folk, Goulding has since teamed up with electronic producer Starsmith to produce Lights, a promising debut that is a lively taste of what this little lass has to offer. The album meanders between genres with some tracks more disco – Starry Eyed, while others more mellow – The Writer. Musically, Goulding sits somewhere between Laura Marling and Little Boots and is all about the great pop hooks. Lyrically she vocalises love-hate tales of broken romances with lines that are dauntingly true.
I had the opportunity to catch up with the lovely Miss Goulding last Tuesday at Universal Music HQ. After a brief interview Ellie was kind enough to sign a copy of her album. We will be offering you guys the chance to win the album so stay tuned for details of the Competition.
