Ellie Goulding attempts to eat a Smurf

Back with another great cover song here on Electric Panda Music. Ellie Goulding, glorious in her own right and purveyor of memorable covers offers up a new one by taking on The Knife’s “Heartbeats” on BBC’s Live Lounge.  As Cover Me Songs points out, her take on the Swedish tracks follows the José González rendition much closer than the original, going for a lush acoustic sound. Originality aside, Goulding’s unique voice lends a new angle to this haunting song.
