“I’m obsessed with the countryside: woods, forests, fields, lakes, mountains. I’m really into folk music and folklore. But more so I’m into electronic music. I’m into bands that have both aspects, like Boards of Canada is a perfect example. You could listen to that type of music running through a woods. It’s kind of what I wanted to achieve.”

“I maintain that when I finally retire from my career in music, I will go and live back in Wales – when I am an old person, if I live to be an old person. The water I miss, and the air, there’s something different about it. And I miss the simple life.”

“I never expected to get the Tom Jones treatment and it amazes me that I do. Strangely it’s women who throw their underwear at me when I’m performing live. My male fans tend to be quite shy. My female fans are wild. I never know what to do with all the lingerie that lands at my feet. Maybe I should open a shop.”

“I instinctively dress a bit tougher because I’ve spent a lot of time in the U.S. and I realised there was a certain image projected of me here. I’ve always been an absolute rebel. When I was in my teen years I had piercings and wore all black.”

“Gwen Stefani has amazing style. I used to really love Courtney Love, and anything she wore I loved. Or Chloe Sevigny, because I really love that sort of classic look, and I like being girly and flowery, and wearing little D&ampG dresses. I wear hats a lot, too. I think it goes back to when I was a bit grungy and was a skater girl for a bit.”

“It’s usually a big kind of vent of frustration or anger or sadness that puts me in the right frame of mind to write. It’s such a cliche to say that artists write when they’re down, but it’s true for me. It’s a relief to get out what’s eating away at my heart or my soul or my head.”
