We have a little comparison on the blog for you today. There’s been some kind of coincidental theme running through this week, so we thought we would post about it. Two separate videos by two amazing female solo artists got released to the wider public this week. Both these girls are Recommender favourites and due for big things. Very big things.
The first is Ellie Goulding, (who we first blogged about here). Perhaps the slightly lesser known of the two we show off today, but certainly not the lesser talent. We managed to secure her for a quick photoshoot (more uploaded on our Flickr soon!), as her support of the Little Boots Tour marched into Brighton this week. She was very playful, happy, excited and a wonderfully easy subject. This same week, her video, for single Under The Sheets, (out in November under Neon Gold Records and produced by none other than Starsmith!), arrived in our inbox and it’s a blinder. She’s also secured a slot on Jools Holland next week, so we expect her cloud of buzz to become rather mushroom-sized in the coming days.
The second video to float under our gaze this week was for the track Mowgli’s Road by Marina & The Diamonds, (an artist that’s had plenty of coverage on The Recommender here, here, here, here and here). Directed by Chris Sweeney, it’s a strange affair, but creative and mesmerizing all the same. The single is getting it’s release on the major label, Atlantic, having previously been on the indie label Neon Gold before now. It’s our favourite tune of hers to date, so we are pleased that she’s hitting the wider audiences with this extraordinary song. The album will likely be out early next year. It’s going to be as big as it gets.
As always, we are interested in getting your feedback on which video and artist you prefer? Let us know your reviews of them in the comments sections. Which artist do you think will make the biggest impact?
