after the big disappointment that ellie goulding’s debut album turned out to be earlier this year, i was waiting for someone else to come in and take advantage of the missed opportunity. looks like we may have finally found someone (or rather she did). this london-based indie electro ingenue calls herself sunday girl. she skims the same waters as goulding but with more confidence and punchier arrangements that sound club-worthy without sounding cliched. her new single, out august 2, is a slick, goldfrappish cover of laura brannigan’s “self control.”
here’s the video.
and here’s the video for an original she released a while back. it was good enough to warrant remixes from russ chimes and diplo.
