Ellie Goulding – ‘Anything Could Happen’

A Grimes-inspired electropop oompah number

‘Anything Could Happen’? It sure could – like the union of Skrillex and Ellie Goulding, electronic music’s most unlikely power-couple. Yet despite copying her boyfriend’s haircut, it’s Grimes that Ellie has clearly been listening to in the time she’s been away. This track starts with high-pitched vocal samples but quickly reveals itself as a sort of electropop oompah number. Wot, no skronking?
