Ellie Goulding continues her winning streak as a legit pop superstar with her latest single “Goodness Gracious,” which receives a sparkly, neon-hued video treatment courtesy of director Kinga Burza (Katy Perry, Marina & The Diamonds).
The track, penned with Nate Ruess of fun., has a nice, twee vibe, streaked with glitchy Passion Pit-style electro; the video, accordingly, is light and colorful, seeing a glammed-out Goulding running around Los Angeles with some friends, dancing and getting into trouble.
It sort of cements Goulding’s Halcyon Days transformation from moody alt-pop songbird to a slicker type of artist, but that’s far from a bad thing: The Tunes are holding up nicely and she looks more comfortable than ever.
