Artist: Florence + The Machine
Year of Release: 2009
Record Label: Island Records
Genre: Pop / Alternative
I saw this artist perform on "So You Think You Can Dance" last week and immediately bought the CD. WOW. The first track, "Dog Days Are Over" starts out with what sounds like a mandolin strumming and alternating between the right and left channels. Then Florence starts singing.. The only way I can describe her is a cross between Siouxie Sioux, Imogen Heap and Annie Haslam. INCREDIBLE!
Of course she's from the UK. How come you guys don't give us a heads-up on artists like this? Cmon already.. We're stuck with Lady Gag-Gag!! HELP! ;-)
I'll write more after I listen to the CD some more. LOVE IT SO FAR.
