I first discovered Ellie Goulding a couple weeks ago when she was the musical guest on Saturday Night Live and I thought she seemed pretty cool so I decided to research her a little bit and I’ve been pleasantly surprised! The biggest treat I’ve encountered so far from her is her music video for “Lights.” I don’t know what it is about this song but it almost puts you in a trance with its hypnotic melody, dance heavy beat and Ellie’s folksy vocals, and the video is the perfect counterpart to the song! It’s like a colorful box of Crayola crayons on Extasy. I think I’ve had it on repeat for the last two weeks straight. Take a couple minutes and soak yourself in the amazingness that is Ellie Goulding.
