Review of Goodness Gracious by Ellie Goulding
The delightful Ellie Goulding serves us a slice of cutsie pop EDM, with a super cool American feel video thrown in. The video is full of fun and vibrancy, as well as some cool neon lighting and there’s even a dance routine. Goodness Gracious is almost instantly infectious, although on the surface it appears to be a happy pop track, but in contrast some of the lyrics are a bit dark. So it’s a good job the video is what it is!
Ellie successfully opened Bruno Mars US Jungle Tour last year and returns to the US again in March, but this time as the headline. Goodness Gracious is the sixth single to be taken from the globally successful Halcyon album and the later re-issued expanded version Halcyon Days. Ellie Goulding is in a good place right now and it’s most definitely Team Ellie from my camp. We wish her the best of luck at the forthcoming Brit Awards too.
