Florence ‘Florence’ Welch is quite a big fan of Calvin Harris.
“I’m such a huge fan of his,” she confirmed to celebrity site DigitalSpy regarding the ‘Michael Jackson’ producer. “What I enjoy about Calvin’s songs is that he has that blend of euphoric and melancholic which as an artist he has managed to perfect.”
Plus it helps that he can get you a lot of radio play.
“It’s that mix of catchy and sad – that feeling of complete joy but something tugging at your insides. That’s what makes a great pop song and I really think he’s coined that,” she continued, misusing the word ‘coined’.
All this talk of dance music has clearly influenced her as she also ‘revealed’ she’s started a dance side project called Side Project. “We made this weird house track that sounded quite churchy – to be confirmed! As yet it has never seen the light of day,” she said.
