GOING LIVE: Ellie Goulding

ELLIE GOULDING
SOUND ACADEMY, TORONTO / OCTOBER 14TH

On a “Sunday Bloody Sunday” as U2 would call it, electronic pop songbird ELLIE GOULDING took center stage at Toronto’s Sound Academy and through a gripping performance, stole everyone’s hearts and lungs. The latter coming from a breathtaking set that was ruled by her sophomore record Halcyon where numbers such as “My Blood” and “Only You” seduced eardrums and personal tastes. The Brit’s vocal authority also displayed how a modern artist can be a true talent, closing out the gig with an encore (“Starry Eyed”) that opened a wound we’re still trying to close.
