Perhaps I am having a very Brit moment, after megadoses of Marina and the Diamonds for the last couple months, Ellie Goulding has creeped into my daily playlist for the last few weeks. Maybe you haven't heard of her yet, but she is definitely headed to blow up! She topped the BBC Sound of 2010 poll and won the Critics Choice Award at the 2010 BRIT Awards following in the footsteps of last years winner, Adele.
The upbeat dancey melodies, her soft but commanding voice and honestly innocent lyrics are a winning combination. While Lani is a friend of the track Underneath the Sheets, I'm personally hooked on Starry Eyed, Guns and Horses and The Writer.
Her debut album Lights was released on March 1, 2010. You can check out some of her songs on
