The 00s is having a bit of a moment right now. In the hands of a TikTok generation, Millennial tropes have been reinterpreted, viewed from a fresh angle. All manner of fashion trends have re-entered the mainstream, giving the internet a strangely nostalgic feel. Could this apply to music, too? Well, Calvin Harris and Ellie Goulding may just have supplied the answer to that.
The duo have just shared new single ‘Miracle’ and it is – hear us out – a bona fide, hands-down banger. It’s a salute to 00s dance nostalgia, a sticky carpet anthem for anyone who went overboard on dark fruits and Aftershock on a Tuesday night.
Ridiculous EDM electronics matched to a regal vocal from Ellie Goulding, it finds the original UK dance-pop dream team reconvening. Seriously, though, it absolutely bangs: if PC Music released this people would be lining up to deliver critical praise.
It comes at a great moment for the pair, too. Calvin Harris is on a rich run of creative form, with his disco-infused ‘Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 2‘ project landing last year. For her part, Ellie Goulding’s ‘Easy Lover’ was remixed by Four Tet before gaining a Grammy nomination.
Tune in now.
