Florence Enchanted


Florence + The Machine's Debut album Lungs has to be my absolute favorite music of the moment. The British chanteuse has such powerful vocals with a rock and roll edge and a unique pixie dust covered sound. Her music transports you to a fairytale like land where glittered harps and chains adorn her glam rock songs. Florence's sound reminds me of Stevie Nicks in the Bella Donna days where new age rituals, dry ice, nymph like outfits, and a choir of backup songstresses would set the stage. All the songs on her debut are standout to me. She has a enchanting sound that makes me want to ride a unicorn in a fairy outfit allover her fairy tale land she creates with her music (that may be a little exaggerated and trippy but its true!). Take a listen and you will be put under her spell too.

I love her! she is such a powerhouse, fun, funky, and funny. I've heard she was a major party girl back in London and actually found her agent b/c she was signing in some gay dance club bathroom hehe

I'm going to listen right now. I've been listening to a lot of LCD Soundsystem lately, I suppose it's time for a change. Plus, who can resist a "pixie dust sound"? :)

I actually saw her perform recently at the Pukkelpop festival in Belgium (got there 2 hours early to be at the front!) and she was A.MAZING. Incredibly sweet too, overcome with emotion at the sight of hundreds of foreign fans singing 'Dog Days Are Over' back to her.
