Last week The Boyfriend, Little Brother and I trotted off to Leeds O2 Academy for an Ellie Goulding gig. It started off well with tickets only £15.00 each, and just kept getting better. Ellie had 2 support acts, Bright Light Bright Light, find them on twitter here and their website here and Sunday Girl, whose website is www.wearesundaygirl.com and twitter www.twitter.com/sundaygirljade.
Bright Light Bright Light were hands down fantastic, they are a similar genre to La Roux, only all male. Little Brother bought the limited edition tour EP, and after hearing it (which is amazing) I have to say that they are so much better live. It's a huge thing to say when a band is better live than their recorded work as very few bands are.
Sunday Girl were also really good, the only thing which annoyed me, was their lead singer had a very annoying tendency of flicking her hair about 200 times a song, which makes watching very off putting. On the other hand, she looked amazing in a gorgeous cape.
Ellie Goulding was also brilliant, she really puts on a show, talking to the crowd as well as performing some awesome music, including new songs and covers. Her version of Temper Trap's Sweet Disposition was unbelievable, I really hope she releases it on her new album. (If you were wondering Ellie wore a navy military jacket, black/navy embellished crop top and high waisted leather shorts/skirt).
If you can go and see her do, it's a brilliant show, and take a listen to Bright Light Bright Light & Sunday Girl, you will not be dissappointed.
