Florence & The Machine are an incredibly special band to me. I went to see them in Dublin and it was a transcendent experience. Florence’s voice has such a unique tone… teamed with the right melody, it would give a chair goosebumps. There’s something mystical and almost esoteric about most of their songs – like walking into a magical wonderland, they transport you through their sound, visuals but also through their lyrics, which more often than not use beautiful allegories to convey their message. There are very few band which elate me in the same way that they do or offer something so unique.
