Ellie Goulding - "Bright Lights"

Ellie Goulding is one of my favourites. What she drops not only captures my attention though, as her music shows up again and again in the weeks following a release, altered by various producers into different genres. Whether it be changed to house, dubstep, minimalism, techno, or even sampled into another artist's song, Ellie's vocals cut through any amount of noise and still sound clear and contrasted. Her sound works well under a wide range of conditions and adds an element that seemed to be missing to the songs she is featured on. This week Ellie has re-released her album lights, but the album is not just more interpretations of her old music, as she includes six new songs on the ep. The aptly named Bright Lights brings more of Ellie's diverse taste of music; with her longing, haunting vocals smoothly blended into acoustically inspired electro melodies with synth wavering throughout. Look for these new songs (or at least parts of them) around the music scene, because they will be making their rounds.
