HIT ME WITH LIGHTNING.

We're not sure if even now - a few months on since we first alluded to its jaw dropping brilliance in our hot tips for '09 - the unwashed masses are quite prepared for it, but it's time to draw back the curtain on Ellie Goulding's "Starry Eyed". Quite possibly our favorite song of the year thus far, "Starry Eyed" establishes Goulding as a force to be reckoned with in 2009's crowded female pop scene and Starsmith as one of the most exciting new producers in the game. This is a masterful pop accomplishment through and through, from Ellie's soaring vocals to those immense bass surges in the chorus, and you'd be wise to get all up on this shit as soon as humanly possible. All aboard the Ellie Goulding train. Next stop: the stars.

MP3: "Starry Eyed" - Ellie Goulding [exclusive]

Our other favorite lady of 2009 also has some fine new sounds for your ears. "Jealousy" is the latest gem out of the Marina & The Diamonds camp and it's sounding like one of her biggest tracks yet. Check the demo at her myspace and keep an eye on this space for some rather fucking exciting Neon Diamonds news later this week.

AMAZING

Wow. Their Black and Gold was already one of my favourites of the year.

I've had Jealousy on repeat since she first posted it. It's properly amazing and should really be her first major single.

Love Ellie, so thanks for this new track.

Neon Gold is right at the front of all things ace right now, so can't wait to catch Marina in Brighton's Great Escape in a few weeks.

My post about Ellie is here if anyone's interested - http://therecommender.net/2009/02/28/the-recommender-number-25/
