Perhaps an improbable candidate to become the Queen Bee of EDM, Ellie Goulding began her career with 2009’s “Under the Sheets” (best remembered for its knowing “like all the boys before” hook), sang an Elton John cover at the royal wedding, and seemingly wasn’t photographed with her acoustic guitar until earlier this year. Now that the times have finally caught up with “Lights,” a bonus track from her 2010 album of the same name, she is appearing on every dancefloor, grabbing official remixes from dubstep superhero Bassnectar, and dating Skrillex himself. Tonight, she comes to Santos to celebrate the release of her new Halcyon. With Xaphoon Jones.
