A couple months ago Mark Ronson hosted Ellie Goulding on Authentic Shit, his show on East Village Radio which is slotted right after ours. Already fans of her sweet, quavering voice from Jakwob's remix of her lilting "Starry Eyed," we stuck around to watch her strum an acoustic in the tiny studio to an audience of four. There was magic in her voice crackles, and if you doubt, you can stream her performance here for proof. On the gorgeous new track "Under the Sheets," her glorious warble is elevated to anthemic heartbreak status. Next time we get dumped and subsequently have emotionally charged ex sex we will probably play this on repeat and think about all our past loves super melancholy-like.
