Computers help people make music – get over it! … There are still people out there complaining that my music is made on computers. But every single fucking band and every single act whose CD you have bought or downloaded on iTunes or listened to on Spotify, they have all used computers at some stage! It’s the best technology out there, whether you’re Björk or Mumford & Sons or fucking Dina Carroll! What do you expect people to do? Sit at home and cut up bits of recording tape?
Calvin doesn’t seem to have a stop button when it comes to touring. Whether it’s heading out in support of big acts like Rihanna or Skrillex or simply playing one-off shows across the world, Calvin’s live shows are quickly become legend both for their regularity and their incredible atmosphere.
