It was just a bunch of us having fun, and thats kind of what I wanted to do. With much of Halcyon Days heavily steeped in sounds of electronic dance music, Goulding isnt afraid of how the new songs will go over in with her American audience, who might not be as versed in the pulsating sounds of dubstep or house. I dont want to think I cant do (something) because no ones ever done it before. Ive always combined my love of folk music with electronic music and pop music. It works for me, Goulding insisted. Its not the easiest task in the world, but it seems to work for me and I seem to have engaged people. If I can keep going and I can keep bringing people together like I did today at Lollapalooza, then Im f**king winning.
