The streak continues: here is yet another emotive video from Ellie Goulding. "Figure 8" is one of the dubbier songs on Halcyon, and the video matches the song's intensity and even amps it up with its visuals. A breakup has never looked so weird, as Ellie takes a note from Zola Jesus and Lady Gaga and drapes herself in red, writhing and smashing dishes in slow-mo. There's plenty of imagery to deal with her, but something tells me that Ellie Goulding likes making her music videos as much as she likes writing her songs. Also, maybe it's a bad idea to dump Ellie Goulding?
Watch the video below.
And for a more subdued Ellie Goulding, watch her session with us at the Bowery Electric.
