Ellie Goulding – Explosions Review
Don’t judge the song by its title. Ellie Goulding’s latest single is a ballad but its title does not match—‘Explosions.’ It is a quiet song that is delivered emotionally. But you can expect some musical eruptions throughout the song through the lyrics. There were vague phrases and metaphors used to describe a turbulent relationship, which is the main subject of the piece.
The song starts through an a capella rendition of the singer. She exhibits an operatic vocal loop that is categorized somewhere between creepy and angelic. Within a minute into the song, piano and strings are heard to take listeners into a sweeping and emotional chorus.
The UK singer is presented in a different way. The song is able to showcase her various sides without compromising her obviously quirky style. It stands out from all other songs that are currently played and heard over the radio.
Music critics point out that it is another pressing reason to get a copy and listen to Goulding’s latest CD ‘Halcyon,’ which was released in 2012. Don’t expect to hear explosions in the song. Instead, be prepared to be taken to an emotional roller coaster ride.
