Led by soul-diva Florence Welch and named for her friend and co-writer, Isabella “Machine” Summers, Florence + The Machine is a pure tour de force. After arriving on the scene with their iconic single “Dog Days Are Over,” the band has released a steady stream of thrilling pop tracks, including “Shake It Off” and “St. Jude.” What makes this group so remarkable? Most people will agree that it’s their vibrant blend of soul, folk, blues and rock and roll, along with rich allusions to Greek, Roman, gothic and biblical imagery. Combine these elements with Welch’s breathtaking mezzo and this is a band better seen than talked about.
