Friday Night Music: Florence + the Machine

I’m surprised I’ve been posting music videos this long without mentioning one of my favorite artists at the moment, the English indie rock group Florence + the Machine. (As you can tell, I seem to have a thing for U.K. rock bands.)

F+TM’s style is darkly moody, gothic, operatic, held together and propelled by the magnificent voice of the lead singer/songwriter Florence Welch. (Not for nothing was their debut album called Lungs.) This one’s a bit more upbeat than most of their hits, but I like it anyway.

What’s been running through your head lately?

    I just recently discovered this band through Pandora and I have to say I am definately a fan.

    This morning i’ve been listening to a lot of rock & metal while i work, and haven’t been able to get Avantasia’s The Scarecrow album & Amon Amarth’s Twilight Of The Thunder God out of my head – both great bands with a good metal sound plus very clear lyrics instead of incoherant screaming :)
