Your Pop Alternative Source
CC: On a different note, this is your first time coming over to America and doing a tour. What are some of your expectations for your tour here?
EG: I don’t know. I’m in Texas now and it’s been pretty straightforward so far. I think my first tour date will be a good decider or not and I’ll be able to a**** a reaction from people here. It’ll be an indicator for what I can expect.…

Goulding, from Hereford, England, has a classic British folkie's voice - the kind of tremulous soprano that evokes a wintry day on a fog-swaddled moor. But LIGHTS places her vocals and minor-key melodies against producer Starsmith's club-ready mix of synths and brisk, busy electro…Continue
