I first heard of Ellie Goulding when I was in England this past fall for three months. Her style is a kind of blend of folk and electro, as odd as that sounds. She has been in the spotlight for a while, and finally put out her debut album Lights (produced by British super-producer Starsmith) this past March, which I highly recommend checking out. Here's "Starry Eyed," which carries the same electro feeling of "Under the Sheets," while also showcasing Ellie's unique voice.
I had never heard of Kate Nash until I listened to Air Swell, but I thought the sample of her on "Breakfast" was probably the best on the tape. So I looked into her, and I really like her style. Like Ellie, she is kind of a blend of acoustic/piano/electro, and has a very unique voice. Some say she over-states her accent, but I think it's fine. Chiddy samples "Skeleton Song" on their tape, but I'm going to give you guys her more popular song "Foundations." This song uses a bouncy piano beat, which contrasts with the pessimistic and somber lyrics. Anyways, it's a great song, as are the rest off Ms. Nash's Made of Bricks.
