‘As charismatic in her own, utterly distinctive way, Welch looks and sounds like a star.’ The Sunday Times Culture
‘Florence and the Machine’s mad art-pop will be 2009’s most beautiful noise.’ The Guardian Guide
‘A dead cert for stardom.’ The Sun
After releasing just two limited singles (‘Kiss With A Fist’ and ‘Dog Days Are Over’) the magnetic Florence & The Machine has built up a formidable following of fans and critics alike, even winning this years highly prestigious Critics Choice BRIT Award. Now with the impressive debut album ‘Lungs’ Florence Welch looks set to exceed all hype and expectation, blowing her contemporaries out of the water.
An insight into why the wonderful world of 22 year old Florence has mesmerized more than a few, the long player is an intoxicating mix of delicate fragility, dark humour and twisted Tim Burton style fairy-tales. Production duties come care of Paul Epworth (Bloc Party, Jack Penate, Maximo Park), James Ford (Arctic Monkeys, The Klaxons, Last Shadow Puppets) and Steve Mackay (Pulp, M.I.A), who were all eager to work with the young newcomer.
From the live favourite ‘You’ve Got The Love’ to the raw blues tinged ‘Girl With One Eye’ to the beautifully painful ‘Between Two Lungs’, the album is crammed with crowd pleasers. Also boasting fresh tracks like new single ‘Rabbit Heart (Raise It Up)’, ‘Drumming’ - with its epic denseness, the terrifyingly brilliant ‘Howl’ and ‘Hurricane Drunk’ with it’s paradoxical charms of heartbreak, love and loss, ‘Lungs’ promises to leave us wanting more of the insanely captivating Florence Welch.
