SHOW PREVIEW: Florence + The Machine at Merriweather Post Pavilion

Seriously, I think we can all agree that Florence Welch of Florence and the Machine is one of the coolest ladies in all of music. And besides her coolness, Florence and the Machine has been creating incredible tunes since forming in 2007. After releasing two incredible albums, Lungs and Ceremonials, the band is preparing to release its third effort this May. 

The band started in 2007 when Florence Welch and Isabella “Machine” Summers were performing together as a duo. After adding Robert Ackroyd, Chris Hayden, Mark Saunders, and Tom Monger, the group began work on its debut record, Lungs. The album was met with amazing critical praise and commercial success, charting in over 15 countries. Welch’s strong, swooping voice mixed with unique instruments like harps and sleigh bells created an incredible debut for the band. 

After two amazing albums, Florence and the Machine has solidified itself as one of the most successful rock bands of the 21st century. The group’s sound is unique, artful, and well-crafted. Every instrument and voice seems to work perfectly together to create a beautiful tapestry of sound. And the only thing more immersive than listening to the recorded albums? Hearing this beautiful band live.

FIFTH HARMONY IN BOSTON

hi! i have 5 extra tickets to fifth harmony’s concert for the 7/27 tour in boston on july 28, 2016 at 7pm at the blue hills bank pavilion. together, the tickets are $380. i would prefer it if you bought all five. however, if you just want one ticket, that’s okay too. i just don’t want there to be like one ticket left that i can’t sell because nobody wants to go alone. the seats (23-27) are in section 4 row E. if you’re interested, please message me off anon and i will give you the paypal details. just letting y’all know, this is cheaper than stubhub!! on stubhub the site charges you a fee of 15% higher than your actual ticket cost in order to generate revenue. i really have to sell these tickets, so even if you aren’t interested in buying them yourself, it would mean a lot to me if you could reblog this/spread the word. 

NEW TRACKS: Florence + The Machine - “As Far As I Could Get”

The anticipation is building for the third album from Florence + the Machine, following 2011’s Ceremonials. With each new single, Florence + the Machine is showcasing that, while they were quiet for a few years, they’re coming back with power. With “What Kind of Man,” Florence + the Machine brought us the bombastic, bigger than life sounds that draw us to her music. With the newly-released “As Far As I Could Get,” Florence tones it down just a bit. Instead of an uplifting tempo, “As Far As I Could Get” echoes a deep sadness with lyrics such as, “I drew bedraggled breaths / Because I am unloved / I went as far as I could get…” The song uses an array of stark metaphors to express a deep sadness that is overcome with “wasting my goddamn time” over a lost love. “As Far As I Could Get” was leaked as a non-LP bonus track from Florence + the Machine’s release for Record Store Day. It’s with bated breath that we all wait for How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful to be released on June 2nd through Republic Records. And while they still last, snag your tickets to see this redheaded queen take stage at Merriweather Post this summer.
