Midas Is King And He Holds Me So Tight

I only discovered Florence and the Machine the other day, because while I've heard her mentioned from time to time I never made an effort to actually give her a listen. I can be oddly resistent to new music without any logical reason. Watching Rabbit Heart was a bit of a revelation for me; it echoed my visions of Ruth St. Denis and secured my growing passion for a pastel, gothic wonderland.

  2. I love her so much!! The xx remix of her version of "You've Got the Love" is amazing too. I feature a lot of music on my blog if you're ever interested in finding new stuff to listen to!

  3. I had been meaning to get around to listening to them too and your post made me you tube it! Fantastic, reminds me of Elaine, the Lily Maid and makes me want to have a feast to celebrate spring dancing like heathens in meadows!

    ReplyDelete

  28. finally! I've been trying to push her on you (and anyone who reads my blog) for the past 7 months :-P

    just kidding. But isn't it a great video!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Wow, what a difference the atlantic makes. I can't get away from Florence over here in the UK, it's like a national obsession. Her warbling voice is a bit much for me, but her wardrobe is killer.

    ReplyDelete

  48. I love Florence & The Machines!
    Rabbit Heart is definitely my favourite off the album, but they're all sooooo good. I've never seen the video though & I doubt I ever will. It looks beautiful, but I'm not a big fan of music videos.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Ooh, I love Florence. I did a post on her just the other day actually. Rabbit Heart is one of my favourite songs by her.
