Ellie Goulding returns to a more upbeat sound on her latest single, “Sixteen.”
Following her beautiful piano ballad, “Flux,” that didn’t quite take off the way it probably should, she’s ready to make us dance again.
Personally, I prefer the more upbeat tunes that the Brit Award winner offers, so when I pressed play this morning I was more than happy to hear synths!
While we’re on the topic of her upbeat tunes, “Close To Me” should’ve been much bigger than it was!
Goulding has always been a brilliant songwriter and “Sixteen” showcases this once again with its nostalgic vibes that tell you her story while being open enough for you to connect to.
“Do you remember the teacher said; you’re too young, too stupid, don’t lose your head/But years gone and we held on with the best intent/Just two kids who kicked it on MSN/Oh, time, suddenly we got no time/We’re so busy doing life/That I miss your eyes on mine”
The euphoric production perfectly fits the hopeful nature of the almost sad love song – kind of subdued but rousing!
We can’t wait to see what Goulding offers next – *prays for “Figure 8” pt II*
