Cited as the new version of Kate Bush, PJ Harvey, or even Bjork, lead singer Florence Welsh claims her greatest influence is Grace Slick of Jefferson Airplane fame. There is no doubt that the singer combined with her long time musical collaborator, Isabella "Machine" Summers have followed a meteoric rise to serious popularity in a short period of time. With several major music awards under their belt, and a debut album that has left a lasting mark on the UK and US album charts, Florence and the Machine have followed up this success with a second smash album and continuous sold out live performances. Like her aforementioned ideal from the infamous 70's psychedelic music scene, Florence performs with sheer emotion and creates a mysterious and romantic vocal ambiance, while the "Machine" creates a soaring musical landscape in support. This recording from their recent UK tour demonstrates the bands unique chemistry and powerful stage presence. A definite must have for fans of modern British rock!
