Review of On My Mind by Ellie Goulding
So Ellie Goulding has always done this EDM a little bit differently. She has a distinctive vocal style that sits equally at home on an acoustic backing as it does a well produced EDM soundtrack. On My Mind is off Ellie Goulding‘s new album, Delirium, which is released on 6th November.
On My Mind is accompanied by a well produced video in which Ellie talks through what is “On My Mind” and discusses the adventures in love, where her feelings are perhaps not reciprocated. Ellie Goulding‘s vocal style is abundant on the track, however, On My Mind displays a bit of spark to her. Some sharp cuts in her vocal delivery add spice to the overall delivery. The track has sharp EDM composition but some great beats and breaks.
The unusual, yet very catchy hook, means On My Mind will stick in your mind like the best pop tracks of the day. This is a definite change of direction for Ellie, and her die-hard fans from the days of Lights, may not be impressed. However, this shows that Goulding is willing to adapt her style as music evolves.
I for one like this new Ellie Goulding and in fact, in some ways better than her previous material.
On My Mind is a great track and a great pointer that Delirium may be the best album yet from Ellie Goulding.
