Ellie Goulding - Beating Heart

3/30/2014 Tunes For Loons 1 Comments

Through both powerhouse collabs (Calvin) and relationships (Skrilly, although from the "I Need Your Love" vid I wish this was also Calvin), Ellie G has become a legit pop-star. Good for you, Glen Coco! With the bestowal of this powerful title, however, there comes great responsibility. Let's be honest, if you are an indie artist, you can release shitty music and still get hipster cred (otherwise idk how the f Tuneyards attained such success). If you are a pop star though, you have to show serious game every time. RIP Britney's latest album. This song, "Beating Heart," is a good first effort. Nice mid-tempo pace, classic electro production, and strong vocals (displaying more range than usual). It's also the best song off the Divergent soundtrack. So props for that. When in doubt, surround yourself with inferior music and you look like the fucking Beatles. Carry on Ellie G!!!!
