LUNGS

The start of Florence + the Machine's career began 2 years before the release of ‘Lungs’, with their EP ‘A Lot of Love, A Lot of Blood’, winning them the acclaimed ‘British Breakthrough Act’ at the 2008 BRIT Awards. The pressure was high, and the band hit a home run with the release of ‘Lungs’ the following year in July 2009. With some of the band's most iconic songs, the album rocketed to number one and world-wide success. Having sold over 3 million copies world-wide, and being certified 5x platinum in the United Kingdom, it truly changed the way British artists made music

CEREMONIALS

 

After the raging success of Lungs, the world didn't have to wait long for Florence + the Machine's sophomore album Ceremonials. It was recorded at the legendary Abbey Road Studios and released on the 31st October 2011, debuting at number 1 in the UK album chart. It became the first of the band’s albums to be Grammy-nominated, and went multi-platinum in Australia, and platinum in the UK. Its accompanying tour ‘The Ceremonials Tour’ sold out many of its arena shows, and received some of the best critical praise of 2011 and 2012

HOW BIG, HOW BLUE, HOW BEAUTIFUL

 
 

Although Florence took a 2 year hiatus to ground herself away from touring, she found herself instead facing an upheaval of emotions. As it turns out, the purgatory of romantic uncertainty brings not only pain, but also a certain measure of creativity. Returning in June 2015 with the band’s 3rd UK (and first US) number 1 album, Florence crooned and raged, exorcising her emotions by taking a turn towards a more frank sound. Together with director Vincent Haycock, an oxymoronic metaphorical visual album ‘The Odyssey’ was born, detailing Florence’s ascent from purgatory and into freedom
