although ellie goulding's debut album, 'lights' has only just been released, the 23-year-old from hereford has already been anointed as the sound of 2010 and, to prove it, she collected a brit award. her mix of pop songs with a tub-thumping electro backdrop ticks all the right boxes, especially 'this love' with its soaring chorus and the swirling 'starry eyed', which she'll surely be playing for the rest of her life. ellie's songs are built around big proper tunes that lift you up and spin you round, yet there's something off-centre about them, something sparkly, filmic, haunting, odd. she mixes heartfelt emotion with other-wordly atmospherics, spins cool electronica into dreamy warmth.
