Music to get you in the mood
If you watched the last ever episode of Sex and the City with a heavy heart, then you’ve probably got a proper soft spot for the song “You’ve Got the Love” by Florence and the Machine. The UK sensation was really put on the map after that one, and it’s only getting bigger and better.
Their array of powerful and supremely catchy tunes means that they have become an overnight sensation worldwide. With songs more meaningful than a pop record, and catchier than any lounge tune, Florence and the Machine deliver much more than just your average easy listening.
If lead singer Florence Welch’s firery red locks weren’t enough to have me totally obsessed, then the new album – Ceremonials – is definitely enough to have me, hook, line and sinker. Whether you’re going through a break-up and need something to allow you to lift your head up high again, or simply want some low-key listening with a bit of an edge, Ceremonials (which goes on sale today, yay!) certainly delivers.
Two of my favourite tracks off the new record are ‘Shake it Out’ (a more upbeat brand of party-suitable song) and ‘What the Water Gave Me’ (a more soulful song, perfect for Sunday sessions on a summer’s day). If you’re looking for some new music that’s sure to leave you feeling inspired, moved, and even a little excited for summer then I highly recommend you allow Ceremonials to become your new obsession.
