Still on a high from Coachella, one musician has stuck in my mind and although the desert dust has now settled, I still have her songs playing on constant repeat. I am, of course, talking about Florence + the Machine. Florence Welch and her band gave an absolutely killer performance that I’ll be remembering for a long time to come. But it wasn’t just about the music, the highly acclaimed songstress completed her theatrical stage presence with an amazing costume designed and made for her by London designer, Hannah Marshall, just two weeks before the festival! Check out the raven-like suit and cape creation, Swarovski detailing giving her an extra element of sparkle.

Florence and The Machine – Shake It Out
Florence and the Machine have JUST (and by ‘just’ we mean about 3 hours ago) released their new single ‘Shake It Out’ from their forthcoming album Ceremonies – due out October 31st. What can we say about the new song – it’s brilliant and classic Florence. We can’t wait for the new album.
We’re pretty damn excited (can’t you tell?!)
Saturday night provided us with a chance to see Florence and The Machine at the Enmore Theater here in Sydney (my absolute favourite venue). The house was packed early with hipsters and PYT’s jostling for position at front of the stage and no one was even close to being disappointed with the show.
All i can say is: if you ever get a chance to see them, don’t hesitate. Just awesome.
