Ellie Goulding’s Halcyon has been a daily listen of mine ever since its release earlier this month, and while I didn’t get a chance to catch the Brit’s show at The Troubadour October 16th, I do have the next best thing: a recording of the full set in HD courtesy of Love Live TV! From set opener “Don’t Say A Word” through a cover of Elton John’s “Your Song” and on to the last strains of “Starry Eyed,” Ellie’s breathy vocals and catchy electo-pop style captivate in the video, and I can only imagine the effect was even more pronounced live.
If you missed the show, or simply want to relive the night, enjoy the full performance below, and be sure to check out Halcyon in full if you haven’t already. My favorite track from the album changes with each daily listen — I’ll go with “Joy” (20:30 in the video below) today, but ask me tomorrow and who knows what I’ll say — and Ellie is one artist who most definitely lives up to the hype.
