We're big fans of Ellie Goulding here at OSS-- but then again, who isn't? Anticipation is building for the release of her debut album, entitled Lights, on 1 March, and the new darling of the British music industry (from the BRITs to the BBC) is well on her way to becoming one very successful pop star.
Of course we've all heard the songs that have been floating around online for the past year, but recently I came upon a new one entitled "This Love (Will Be Your Downfall)", and I am more than smitten. The recording is a live one taken from (what I gather is) a recent show at Shepherd's Bush Empire; the quality isn't great, but you gotta hand it to the amateur recorders at these gigs for giving the impatient among us something to latch onto until the real thing comes out.
"This Love" is beat driven, dance-pop with an angsty bent-- that uniquely Ellie Goulding sound-- and I can't seem to turn it off.
Thanks the folks at elliegoulding.net for the original upload of this track. Hop over to the site for downloads of all the other Ellie stuff floating around that you may have missed, including live performances & demos.
Ellie's on tour through the spring in the UK, so hop to one of the gigs (London shows are sold out, among others). You will be glad you did! Check elliegoulding.co.uk for details.
