Florence And The Machine Drumming Song

  • Pin it

You’ve heard it earlier in the YSL Manifesto Spring Summer 2010, now it’s the time to break it loose: Florence and the Machine with the Drumming Song!

I hope you had a wonderful week, I know I did, every week with you is simply wonderful! Thank you for your beautiful, insightful comments, I trust you’re getting ready for your most amazing weekend yet! Enjoy Florence and the Machine’s Drumming Song! (more info right after the jump!)

There’s something about me and British music. It just fits me like a glove. Florence Welch’s voice and personality make this Machine work and they’re working it right: besides toping the music charts, they were also awarded with a BRIT Award this year.

Drumming Song is part of Florence + the Machine’s debut album, Lungs (2009). Highly orchestrated (bass, cello, drums, harp, organ, piano, violin, viola), the song was written by James Ford with Crispin Hunt. And if you must know, this is a song about love. About gothic horror (?) and fear. That’s what Florence said. I wish they could continue making good music and not be just a one-hit-wonder, the flavor of the season. At least Gaga’s pretended originality won’t be so original anymore. It will be just what it is: desperate need for attention. Florence, as troubled as she was (and still is, judging by the way she describes herself) is truly talented and hopefully she’ll go on creating. (more about Florence and the Machine here)

Mwah, I try to get into her music for some months now…..don’t know. I listened a lot to You Gotta Love and her voice remind me on Dutch singer Anouk’s voice which is much better in my opinion. Just my humble Dutch opinion. I think this is a bit too polished and I’m kinda tired of singers and their looks and pantlessness…..
Nonetheless this girl has alot off talent. Can’t deny that.
Kpriss, I very much agree with you on British music! :)

Keep an eye on Karen Elson to stick to redheads ladies. She made an album produced by hubby Jack White. Total different than Florence of course but her song The Ghost Who Walks is a very pleasant surprise.

oh no! I should’ve double checked! I’m so sorry, Ellington, here’s two more to make it up: one with a live recording of Florence singing the Drumming Song and one with an interview. I do hope they’re on now :( I was unable to find the exact video with a decent sound quality so I had to pick two so you’d make an idea…

Adriana, I thought you might find her interesting even for the hair! ;) now I’m happy to see you were actually into her music! Great!

Yeah, music and me: inseparable. Thanks for adding the two other vids Kpriss.

I’m still kinda disappointed that great Dutch singers as Anouk and Sharon den Andel (singer of the group Within Temptation) never get the world wide recognition they deserve. These women has such great voices and are marvelous stage personalities too. Sharon designs all her stage outfits as her second passion. But that’s how it is…..we’re only a small country….

Ellington, that’s odd! I was able to listen to the YouTube vid here in the Netherlands.
