Ellie Goulding - Sixteen | Song Review


 Ellie Goulding has released her new single called 'Sixteen' which features different artist's younger picture on the single cover.

The song has an obvious meaning - it is about being 16 years old again. The decisions you make when you're young but you think you're all grown up. Ellie has said the song is about the "reckless days of adolescence".

Ellie Goulding has such a unique voice which I love and this song is no exception. It is truly brilliant. I am not much older than 16 - 4/5 years older to be exact - but it does take me back to when I was 16. I used to think I knew everything and when I had left school, I thought I was a grown up but I was wrong. Growing up is scary but it was always good to live in the moment and not take the teenage years for granted.

The production is really good also. At some parts of the song, it does seem to be too loud/powerful for Ellie Goulding's voice but I do like it. Ellie's vocals through out the song are really special, a few voice cracks which I like it. Catchy lyrics and a catchy production. Overall a really good song.

I have to admit, it is a Ellie Goulding song. You can work that out when listening to it. Nothing too different from her other songs. Obviously the production is different from other songs but the whole song stays in the same lane as her others. This shows that Ellie has found the sound she is most comfortable releasing.

I am excited to hear Ellie's upcoming album!

Overall Rating:

★★★★☆

Prodigal - When We Bleed

Prodigal is an Alternative Pop/Rock artist from Finland. The nature of his music is to be an eccentric mix of all the different styles he listens to and creates something catchy, immediate and current out of it all. His new single 'When We Bleed' was released independently ahead of his upcoming debut album. 'When We Bleed' reflects on a world where every decision and action seems to be motivated by blatant narcissism of some kind. Trying to navigate these odd times, the song tries to find relief in numbers and the fact that for better or worse, we're never really alone in trying to make sense of it all.
