F is for Florence and the Machine

Today is the sixth day of the A to Z Challenge. I don’t really have a set theme, but I’ll be blogging about writing, favorite books, bloggers’ books, and music I listen to while I write. 

F is for Florence and the Machine

Florence and the Machine has been around for a while, but I only started to listen to them this year. I replay their songs constantly when I’m writing. Their music gives me goosebumps. My heart feels full and my mind goes into overdrive with emotion…which can be good when writing certain scenes. 

Happy Friday, everyone.

Where have I been. Haven't heard of her.
Thank you for coming to my blog to read about Sarah. She is a wonderful person and the comments were the most heartwarming yet of all the bloggers I've posted so far. I'm so enjoying doing this series. Great way to spread the word on some lovely bloggers.

Oh I've not heard of her before!! I really like the first and third videos here. I also liked the second song--but the 1st and 3rd were my favs!!

Cheers, Jenn

She has quite and amazing voice!!!

Shannon Lawrence said...

Wow. I have to be honest, I've avoided her music because someone who drives me nuts constantly talks about her and it turned me off, but now that I've listened to her music, I'm hooked!

The lead singer has such a distinctive voice - vulnerable, yet strong.

I am completely taken in by the fierceness in Florence's voice.

I adore them. I think their sound is hauntingly beautiful.

They are awesome! I first heard on them on one of last year's award shows.

Medeia, I am the same way. Their songs give me goosebumps, too--which doesn't happen too often with music.

Medeia Sharif said...

Thanks for commenting. I'm glad many enjoyed the tunes.
