Ellie Goulding Gives Burning iTunes Performance
REVIEW: The English rose leaves the Roundhouse 'Starry Eyed'...
Monday, September 23, 2013 - 17:35
Closing the third week of this year's iTunes Festival was recent chart-topper Ellie Goulding who certainly made her mark in what was her third iTunes appearance.
Feeling: Taking to the stage in Camden's Roundhouse, the blonde, English rose with the angelic voice is a force to be reckoned with. Once into the upbeat dance songs the tiny dancer is somewhat of a festival headbanger, jumping and dancing across the stage and getting the audience riled up too.
With an energetic band and synth-infused material Ellie had everyone singing and dancing along with her. Sunday night qualms were soon forgotten as revellers let their hair down.
The Look: Accompanying her band of a drummer, two keyboard players and a guitarist, Ellie was joined by three violinists and a harpist for the softer tracks.
The Burn singer sported a vest top revealing her toned and slender body and some patterned pants to jazz it up. Her blonde locks were left down and flailed wildly as she rocked out with her band.
Tunes: Ellie kicked off the night with tracks from her second album Halcyon but it was her fourth song Starry Eyed that set the tone. Being quite a diverse performer she could swing the tempo from lively to mellow and back again without corrupting the performance as a whole.
Her husky, distinct sound was heard clearly when she sang Elton John’s Your Song and I Know You Care, a song she wrote about her father. Without killing the mood of the eager crowd with mellow music, Goulding brought back to beat with Only You and Under the Sheets.
Ellie's encore brought the house down with her Calvin Harris collaboration I Need Your Love and her first ever number one track Burn. For the final verse she whipped out a guitar and brought some rock and roll to the finale.
Celeb Spots: Ellie kept the eyes focused on her and her band so no celeb friends were spotted. Also quite a number of her fellow British acts are Transatlantic touring at the moment!
Sweat Factor: The Roundhouse is an intimate venue and when packed to capacity a warm and sticky place. Ellie was feeling the heat and even whipped off her outer top and had wind fans placed strategically at the front of the stage to keep her cool. The crowd was sweating but the more mellow tunes allowed for a warm down between the dance tracks.
Summary: Goulding opened the show letting the crowd know Anything Could Happen and left a burning impact after her heartfelt and heart beating performance.
