i'm obsessed by the vibes of the new florence + the machine songs, that's the rawest, powerful and most feral i've ever seen Florence, it's like she's REALLY in tune with her shit, like i legitimately feel like i'm gonna accidentally summon something when i listen to the full album. cant wait.
Literally will never recover from that live performance of Hunger where Florence Welch reaches the last lines of the song and the music fades away and she just puts her hand on her chest and looks up and lets out a gentle sigh before tenderly singing ". . .and I forget to worry"
“i think there’s something about being a young woman that feels very murderous. that’s what i was trying to get with a song like ‘dream girl evil.’ it can be dangerous for people to think you’re incredibly nice. when you get, ‘you’re an angel,’ that seems like such a high place to fall from. when i see messy or violent or terribly behaved women, especially young women, there’s a liberation. to not have to try and survive by being good.”
