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'.
