ellie goulding.


while reminiscing about the good old days of celebrity deathmatch, some of us bloggers over on grindin have been discussing who we think would win in the battle of the new indie pop princess would be. we've thrown everyone into the ring from alice from crystal castles to victoria little boots to la roux to marina & the diamonds.

thanks to our buddy derek davies over at neon gold records (home to passion pit and marina & the diamonds), we have a new contender! ellie goulding is ready to sing her lungs out, has frankmusik protégé starsmith on the production and is our secret favorite for the 'best newcomer of 2009' crown - not too sugary sweet or too trendy or too 80's, just damn right!

ellie goulding - starry eyed

the whole package should be released some time this summer and some heavy remixes are already in the works. (aleks hijackin' this post now) and just in case ellie goulding is all new to you, here is some more of her wonderful work: the sam sparro cover 'black & gold', the frankmusik produced 'wish i stayed' and the just plain beautiful 'guns & horses'.

ellie goulding - black & gold
ellie goulding - wish i stayed

all tracks straight from the neon gold blog, add it to your feed reader if you don't want to miss out on the next pop sensation!

don't forget Polly Scattergood. Golden Filter did a great remix and she has an AMAZING voice.

I agree. Ellie Goulding is incredible... I have been obsessed with her voice for the past month or so.

Check out this remix of her bonus track "Lights" off her album...

It's got a Jack Beats vibe to it...
