Florence + The Machine

How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful


2LP + download

Released: 1st Jun 2015


the 3rd album from ms welch is live-sounding, tune-rich, unhinged in all the right places & powerful in all the best ways - In voice & outlook, Florence has never sounded better.

she's toned it down somewhat so that the strength of the songs can really come into focus rather than the usual bombast. much like shop fave la roux, the painful journey that got her to this record makes her much more interesting musically & allows her to shine. "Overflowing with stately songwriting and lyrical craftsmanship, ‘How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful’ makes for a restrained but joyful return, and a collection that will last long after Welch’s broken bones are mended" 8/10 - nme.
