Do you know what Ellie Goulding thinks about her voice?

According to Neil McCormick of The Daily Telegraph in a review of Halcyon, her tremulous tremolo and somewhat harsh timbre evoke the air of something primitive and folk, and her birdlike high notes convey a childish wonder, while darker tones imply ancient depths of sadness, according to Neil McCormick. She warbles while singing, as if she were strung out on the music, expressing a desperate passion.

An original voice is truly the rarest and sometimes most unintentional of gifts. Regarding the way her vocals were layered, he remarked, “Producer Jim Eliot sets her voice front and center, building up choral walls of vibrato, fashioning hooks from chopped-up recordings of chirrups and chants, and making odd textures from trills and warbles.”

Goulding claimed in an interview with Carson Daly to have overheard saying, “My voice occasionally seems to be out of control, in my opinion. It simply kind of goes everywhere, so I have to exert a lot of control over it.

Sometimes, things come out that I didn’t expect. It’s hilarious since I love to mimic opera singers, but I’ve never taken singing lessons. Oh sure, I got a breathing lesson to help me breathe more effectively, but I never indeed had a singing lesson.
