The inevitable Ellie Goulding thread

I imagine she'll get her US push this year and although you british lot seem to be pretty aware of her already, we Yanks don't much know about her.

Under the Sheets was top ten for me last year. I really like her.

christ every year there's some new British chanteuse (but only one! we can't handle more than one a year) foisted on the American public make it stop.

honestly preferred it when the UK was cranking out electric guitar virtuosos instead of this bullshit

Actually, Shakey, this year there is also Marina Diamandis, who I am voting for, though I could easily imagine myself turning against her. (Regardless of where I ultimately land w/r/t her singing, she writes some excellent songs.)

hehe jed i made the mistake once of starting a poll about sharon osbourne calling her a "cunt" in the scottish meaning and some americans weren't very happy about it!

Does she have a breakout hit in the U.S.? "Lights" is at number 80 in Billboard this weeks but I heard it in the car for the second day in a row.

timellison, Tuesday, 7 February 2012 23:23 (six years ago) Permalink

She's been sorta simmering? I think the fanbase/name recognition is there now and she kinda needs one more track to break out in a big way.

Took a long time, but "Lights" is top ten.

& shes dating skrillex?! i guess this is old news but wtf

When asked about how he met the 'Starry Eyed' singer, he replied: "I sent her an e-mail, like, 'I'm Skrillex. I don't know if you know who I am, but I love your shit. We started texting and talking on the phone."

johnny crunch, Monday, 23 July 2012 23:07 (six years ago) Permalink

i'm guessing that's probably the only reason for her stateside success (i believe she sings on one of his excellent compositions too)

Jamie_ATP, Monday, 23 July 2012 23:12 (six years ago) Permalink

yes, i hear her on pop radio every day because she's dating a guy who, while very famous, has never been on pop radio

Just last week, we finally saw the other song that topped the On-Demand chart that isn't a Hot 100 No. 1 (yet): Ellie Goulding's "Lights." That song is now at No. 2 on the Hot 100 after one of the longest, slowest climbs in chart history, and it may be about to take over the top slot this week.

feel good about calling this thread "inevitable"

"Batshit crazy," the foam clog tycoon said. (forksclovetofu), Tuesday, 14 August 2012 18:19 (six years ago) Permalink

Weird that "Lights" is so high on the charts now. I feel like it was all over the radio this winter/spring but I haven't heard it in months.

Yeah, it was there, then gone, and now it's back again.

Josh in Chicago, Tuesday, 14 August 2012 18:32 (six years ago) Permalink

i hear this all the time now. never thought she would happen here. like, despite all the popular remixes of that song and everything, even la roux happening here surprised me less

The songs alright but I absolutely hate her new haircut/-style. She looks like that one girl from the midwest on each season of America's Next Top Model who gets the old hair and eyebrow dye so that she looks like an albino alien. Just cause you're dating Skrillex doesn't mean you have to be Grimes.

scarfs, Monday, 10 September 2012 17:26 (six years ago) Permalink

I pay almost no attention to her (why because she booring), but I had no idea about the Skrillex thing.

Johnny Fever, Monday, 10 September 2012 17:29 (six years ago) Permalink

Didn't necessarily expect her to have follow-up hits in the U.S., but she's top twenty again with "I Need Your Love."

it still bums me out that "Anything Could Happen" didn't quite pop off

(NB probably not an actual sample but an "interpolation")

first three singles from new record Delirium are all really strong. record appears to be nearly a half-half split on co-writes with Greg Kurstin and Max Martin and crew... there are two RedOne and a Disclosure track on the deluxe versions of the album... out next week! This is coming up blind for me and now very excited.

Saw her live once and didn't dig it at all. Don't like any of her singles I've heard so far. When she comes on the radio, my kids and I have a standing agreement to switch the station. Her voice is so static and undynamic. Like listening to someone mutter at you over a programmed beat.

Josh in Chicago, Thursday, 19 November 2015 15:15 (three years ago) Permalink

i liked bright lights a lot and have found everything I hear from her for the past four years to be pretty poor. maybe i need to try again?

welltris (crüt), Thursday, 19 November 2015 15:54 (three years ago) Permalink

it's mostly 'guns and horses', 'starry eyed', 'under the sheets', 'this love will be your downfall' for me... and they all still sound great to me! i blame skrillex and the market for pushing her in directions i find boring as hell

i made a scope for my laser musket out of some (forksclovetofu), Thursday, 19 November 2015 15:58 (three years ago) Permalink

Yeah, forgot about Lights, that was fine. One I hate the most is the one that just repeats "love you like you do" over and over again.
