Florence And The Machine
'Kiss With A Fist'
Released on Moshi Moshi June 9th 2008
Dazed & Confused 'With a voice so hauntingly captivating you can feel it in
your stomach, the skinny south Londoner and her trusted musical machine make
some seriously beautiful noise.'
Observer Review 'She's blessed with an astonishingly expressive voice, which
can quickly switch from haunting whisper to harridan shriek.'
Crowned NME's number 1 best new act of SXSW after a typically jawdropping live
performance on BBC 3's Introducing stage, Florence And The Machine's debut
single on Moshi Moshi is set to confirm 21 year old Florence Welch's status as
one of the hottest new talents in British music today.
Armed with a songbook bursting with a surreal selection of darkly romantic
murder ballads, and blessed with a voice that seems to channel the spirits of
Patti Smith, Kate Bush and Bjork through one slight Camberwell art student,
Florence was first spotted 18 months ago by her manager singing in the toilets
at a party and since then has been wowing audiences across London with a
life-affirmingly joyous stage presence that belies the dark voodoo at the
heart of her songs.
Produced by ex Pulp guitarist and MIA producer Steve Mackey, her single 'Kiss
With A Fist' is the latest stunning debut release from the label that been so
kind as to have introduce us to such artists as Kate Nash,
Late of The Pier, Lykke Li and Friendly Fires amongst many more.
Appearing on the same SXSW bill as MGMT has led to Florence taking the coveted
support slot on the MGMT's European tour this May. Catch her there or at the
