NYC, I LOVE YOU BUT YOU'RE BRINGING US DOWN.

It's damn hard to be home after what might have been the best string of nights of our respective lives, as Neon Gold's first proper invasion of London since launching things back in September was one to fucking remember. The nights were late, the British girls cute and the drinks plenty, and it'll be a few days before either of us feel like functioning human beings again. Easing the recovery process is Ellie Goulding, a lovely girl we met over there who's just about the most promising thing we've heard in ages, and this is coming from kids who generally aren't crazy about girls with guitars. At just 21 she's a phenomenal talent - a songwriter beyond her years with a wonderfully unique voice that's equal parts vulnerable and hopeful, quiet and powerful. There are few unsigned artists of her caliber kicking around at the moment and tracks like the Frankmusik collaboration that follows have her distancing herself from the pack at a rapid pace. "Wish I Stayed" is electro for the introspective set and you better believe we can't wait to hear more. Expect big things in '09.

I hate to say this but it doesn't do much for me. I'm sure she's great too. : (

Haha. Actually amazing. She went to my Uni and won our battle of the bands music festival (keynestock).

She's very good - didn't know that she'd worked with Frankmuzik though.
