Florence Welch announces dance side-project
Thu 28th Jun, 2012 Newsin
Florence & The Machine’s Florence Welch has had a pretty good run of late. Now, with two mega-successful albums, plenty of sold out tours and a couple of Brit Awards to her name, the vocal powerhouse has announced her next move: a foray into dance music.
Welch told Digital Spy that she’s been working on a dance-focussed side-project called – wait for it – Side Project. “We actually have a dance outfit side project called Side Project,” she explained. “We made this weird house track that sounded quite churchy – to be confirmed! As yet it has never seen the light of day.”
The Vivid Sydney star also sang the praises of Calvin Harris, who recently went to work remixing her track Spectrum. “I’m such a huge fan of his. 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. 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.”
So, a new convert to house music? Wonder what DJ Sneak will make of this.
