I was talking to a friend this weekend over some drinks (OK, I was drinking, he was serving them up). As usual, the topic of music came up. At one point he said to me (and I'm paraphrasing), "You know who I've been actually getting into lately? Ellie Goulding. She's like Bjork, but you can understand what she's singing." I have to say I liked that observation. While her first record, 2010's Lights was electropop at its finest, her latest Halcyon definitely has a darker, more mysterious sound. Kind of like Bjork. But you can understand what she's singing (Thanks K).
