[Music Video] Ellie Goulding - "Beating Heart"




Not quite sure what is going with Ellie Goulding at the moment. I'm pretty sure I listened to her last album  Halcyon quite a bit when it was released in 2012(!), but yet I haven't recognised the last few songs she's released as being from it.

Latest song, Beating Heart, doesn't even feature on the album re-release, Halcyon Days- madness, I tell you!! Well, whatever she's doing, at least she's still releasing her brand of folksy electro-pop, as I do quite enjoy it. There's something otherworldly about it.

You vocal fiends might enjoy hearing the little run at 3.26, where the Diva showcases the nimbleness of her voice, transitioning from head to chest voice effortlessly. Take a listen!

(Ok, so I stopped being so darn lazy and looked up where the song is from. Beating Heart is taken from the soundtrack of new movie, Divergent. I probably would have figured that out if I'd actually watched the video, instead of just listening to the song. Silly me. Fans of Ellie, and the movie, can now put the stones down!)

  1. I don't particularly like this song but I do like her sound in general. I guess I'll have to take a listen to her work.

  2. Some distant Faithless reminiscence in there I think. I liked it well enough.

  3. I love Ellie. She's always so light and fun and soft. As for the music video I tried to read the book for the film and found myself moaning at the tweenyness of it. Has anybody else read it? I might see the movie since the scenes in the music video were alright...

    Her album "Halcyon" and "Halcyon Days" are some of the coolest electro-pop I've heard. It's actually quite good if you enjoy alternative pop and dance music.

  6. I adore that run she did, and I'm extremely jealous of anyone who has the ability to sing such quick riffs with notes so close together, and still have each note distinguished individually. I also adore that Ellie always writes songs that fit her voice so well, it's great when an artist understands who they are and what they should be singing. I know it's a soundtrack song, but I hope she sticks with the electrofolk pop instead of the pure Burn pop.
    On a similar note: Have you heard her song Mirror from the Hunger Games: Catching Fire soundtrack? Also a great gem.

    Her voice is an acquired taste though

  10. To me, she hasn't had a single bad song till date. And its all courtesy her voice. Thats what a 'gifted' voice can do, make everything sound special and beautiful.


    Her voice is extremely angelic and I enjoy listening to her live, but its perfectly understandable that her voice polarizes people.

  11. She's very good for being only 16-17 years old if I do say so myself her runs and control are great I've been following her for a while now and I definitely consider myself a fan:)

  12. I cannot stand neither her voice or her music and she is one of the most boring live performers I have ever watched or come across but, surprisingly, I do "like" this song. Perhaps I should delve into her material more...

  13. This didn't make think of Rihanna. But it sounds like a filler song. But maybe I just have to get used to it.
