You remember Ellie Goulding’s ‘Starry Eyed’? You remember how awesome it was two summers ago? You remember how it has a perfectly good, fun and funky, music video? You remember how the perfectly good, fun and funky, music video also got edited into a perfectly good music video for the jaw droopingly amazing Russ Chimes reMix of the song? Well, now the single is being released in the States there is a new video for it, which I won’t be posting as it appears to be the latest in a long line of record label attempts to turn Ms. Goulding into the blandest artist ever. The previous video was kinetic, and dancey, and youthful. The new video is Ellie slow-mo in a field, full of product placement, or something. Kinda’ like ‘The Writer’ video then? Seriously, we’ll see how many top 10 hits she has after you’ve tuned her into a dreary folk artist. My advice? Stick her back with Starsmith, let Neon Gold look after her, and we’ll all have a good time. The song is about shared clubbing or festival experiences, not picnics and feeling up bark.
Aaaaaaaaaanyway…renewed interest in the, admittedly still brilliant, track means more reMixes. Daze has put together a storming Disco fuelled epic track. Sliding between different grooves Daze controls the listener before sweeping in with a massive analog solo. Synth Funk haven.
‘Starry Eyed’ is out now.
