Reading the name Ellie Goulding alongside the Alt-J song title “Tessellate,” my heart nearly dropped. I scrambled, unable to press the play button fast enough. I hope your eyes and ears perked up the same way mine did because as always, Ellie does not disappoint. Check out an excerpt from my article below, and read my full review on Examiner.
Ellie Goulding gave music junkies a surprise treat last Tuesday. The singer/songwriter quietly released a cover of Alt-J’s 2012 indie rock standout “Tessellate.” Twenty hours, and 200k plays later, the cover dominated the indie blogosphere, receiving high praise from reviewers and fans alike….
Teaming up for the second time with Chiddy Bang producer, Xaphoon Jones, the two have created a captivating masterpiece. The seductive spin highlights Ellie’s ethereal vocals over a hypnotic atmosphere, complete with jazzy sax solo. Take a listen to this mesmerizingly smooth rendition of “Tessellate.”
