"No analysis of guitar vs electronic music will ever eliminate the human element of the song: music speaks to people in a way no other art form can. Take Coldplay, it's fresh because it's honest and emotional, it's not dressed up. I'm trying to do a similar thing; honest, unashamedly beautiful music that people can come and wash away their week with." Read more on Last.fm.
