The lovely Ellie Goulding has finally made Starry Eyed (one of my favourite songs of 2009) an official release, accompanied by a trippy blurry lovely video. The new version of the track has fuller drums, a few more production tricks and is a bit less wispy and ethereal. I haven’t decided if this is a good thing or not.
By dint of being crowned BBC’s Sound of 2010, Ellie will be receiving about as much Internet hatred incommensurate with her actual level of global popularity as Florence and La Roux did this past year, but as long as she keeps releasing wonderful bits of electro cotton candy, I don’t mind her one bit. In fact, the demo mix of Starry Eyed alone probably got as much play as any of the Sound of ’09ers.
