By this point in time, all of you should be very familiar with this name. In 2010 she became the biggest breakout of the year, and is now being touted as the “new queen of pop.” Her name, is Ellie Goulding.
While many of you are likely to have listened to Ellie‘s list of chart-topping pop singles before, the lovely blonde-haired icon has a lot more in-store than you might think. Halcyon, Ellie‘s sophomore record from last year, displayed an array of heartfelt singles from, “Don’t Say A Word” to the vocal-challenging, “Explosions.” Full of her tenuous and hoarse vocals, “Explosions” has quickly became the highest example of her raw, natural talent, but for most, it made its way through Halcyon without a note of acknowledgement.
By releasing a new video for the underrated single on her YouTube channel this morning, Ellie looks to have finally given this gorgeous single the light of day. Displaying some of her show-stopping performances, this new video showcases her ability “belt it out” in front of thousands of fans, and leave them starstruck in the process.
If you have yet to listen to “Explosions,” or the rest of Halcyon for the that matter, you can pick yourself up a copy off of iTunes [here] or watch the video below to get a taste of what Ellie Goulding is all about.
