The mercury's sky rocketed straight out of thermometer, your windows are rolled down, the world's whipping by in a speedy blur, and, obviously, the radio is cranked. Going out on a little bit of a limb here, but we're guessing it's a situation you've found yourself in this summer, right? Right Which means it's been next to impossible to avoid "Lights"; the bouncy, single from unexpected dance diva, Ellie Goulding
's debut album of the same name. Perhaps not around long enough last year to feed off the carefree, warm weather vibes, "Lights" is everywhere this summerwhich inspired us to re-introduce you to the session we did with the vivacious, English songwriter last year. That song, plus the emotional wonders "Guns and Horses" and the euphoric "Starry Eyed" are featured in a unique setting, stripped of almost everything, save Goulding's unparalleled voice and a few instrumental accents. The result is sweet and simple music taken to dazzling heights, revealing that the true power of her refrain rests in her bare vocal flourishes and harmonies. It's an inspiring, anomalous session, and definitely one you'll want to share with everyone you know.
