"The name Florence and the Machine started off as a private joke that got out of hand. I made music with my friend, who we called Isabella Machine to which I was Florence Robot. When I was about an hour away from my first gig, I still didn't have a name, so I thought 'Okay, I'll be Florence Robot/Isa Machine', before realizing that name was so long it'd drive me mad." said lead singer Florence Welch.
Florence and The Machine started as an early collaboration between friends Florence Welch and Isabella Summers in the middle of '07 and '08, recruiting future members along the way. Present members include lead vocalist Florence Welch, Isabella Summers on keyboards and synths, Robert Ackroyd on guitars, Tom Monger on harp, xylophones, and percussions, bassist Cyrus Bayandor, Aku Orraca-Tetteh on percussions, Dionne Douglas on violins, Hazel Mills on keyboards, and Loren Humphrey on drums.
Florence and The Machine released their debut "Lungs" in 2009, to which it received critical acclaim. It featured the RIAA 4x Platinum hit single "Dog Days Are Over" which brought the band to the global stage. Their succeeding singles, "You've Got the Love", "Cosmic Love", "Shake It Out", "Spectrum (Say My Name)", "Hunger", and so much more, made Florence and The Machine a staple indie-rock favorite act across the globe.
With their fifth studio record coming out real soon, Florence and The Machine dropped a number of new singles that give listeners a taste of the 'dance fever to come. The first single dropped off of the new album is "King" – where Welch reveals a struggle with her womanhood and career as a performer.
"I suddenly feel this tearing of my identity and my desires… “To be a performer, but also to want a family might not be as simple for me as it is for my male counterparts…," says Florence Welch.
The next single fresh from the upcoming record is "Heaven Is Here". Welch said in an Instagram post – “I wanted to make something monstrous. And this clamour of joy, fury and grief was the first thing that came out,”.
