Tipped For Success-Florence And The Machine

Florence and the Machine is the recording name of Florence Welch and a collaboration of other artists who provide backing music for her voice. She ranked 3rd in the Recent BBC Sound Of 2009 poll.

According to Wikipedia: Musically Florence and the Machine’s sound is generally referred to as soul inspired indie. Florence and The Machine’s music has received praise across the British music media, especially from the BBC who have played a large part in Florence and The Machine’s rise to prominence by bringing them into the spotlight as part of BBC IntroducingThis has led to her playing Glastonbury and Reading and Leeds festivals. The band’s debut album, Lungs, is due to be released in July 2009. The band’s debut single was “Kiss with a Fist”. The follow up single “Dog Days are Over” was recorded with no instruments in a studio the “size of a loo”.

They are on my list of “Can’t Wait To See At Oxygen” and I have a funny feeling that they are going to be brilliant live. I love their song “Dod Days Are Over” alot as well as their cover of “You’ve Got The Love” originally released by The Source and Candi Staton. Enjoy!!
