13 years have passed since Florence + The Machine’s spell bounding debut album ‘Lungs’. The album cemented Florence Welch and her band as one of the great forces in British music, with their dramatic production and iconic use of the harp, alongside Welch’s powerful, ethereal vocals. To celebrate the release of her latest album ‘Dance Fever’ and the upcoming UK tour in November, we've named Florence + The Machine our May Artist of the Month.
Forming in 2007, the band started off by playing small gigs across London, until in 2008 they landed a support slot on MGMT’s European tour, and later released their first single ‘Kiss With A Fist’. They received attention from the likes of BBC Introducing, who helped shine a light on the band, notably giving them a live performance recording at Maida Vale Studios in September 2008.
After the smash hit debut, Florence + The Machine continued to prove their craft on their follow up studio albums 'Ceremonials' (2011), 'How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful' (2015) and 'High As Hope' (2018). Songs like ‘Shake It Out’, ‘Spectrum (Say My Name)’, ‘Hunger’ and so many more filled the 2010s soundscape with Florence’s stadium-shaking voice, lifting her into the pop charts alongside the likes of Adele (Pitchfork).
We can’t wait to hear all the new tracks live on tour across the UK this November! Don't miss out, grab your tickets now!
