Normally, I would not write about an artist like Ellie Goulding. She’s pop – radio pop no less – and already a pretty big star. But I have a HUGE crush on her, and it’s my site, so here it is. This song will light up the top 40 chart as summer rolls on – it’s just too good not to. The repetitive chorus, velvety staccato synths, and pounding beat will have “Burn” stuck in your head for days to come. Check out the video above.
“Burn” is the first single off Ellie’s new album, Halcyon Days, an extended rerelease of her second album coming at the end of August. She’s currently on a world tour (sorry, no upcoming east coast tour dates), so her website, Twitter, and Facebook are the best places to find her.
