Na momente, dok slušam je slušam, osećam se ovako nekako.



A pure feeling
I'm invisible and magical
If only for a moment
A pure feeling
I'm scared to control it


I, kad sam već tu, da podelim i jedan fantastičan koncert - Flo na Koačeli :)

Florence and the Machine - Hurricane Drunk

Počalji od Still_dreaming taj Čet Sep 10, 2015 10:34 am

Hurricane Drunk


No walls
Can keep me protected
No sleep
Nothing inbetween me and the rain
And you can't save me now,
I'm in the grip of a hurricane
I'm gonna blow myself away

I'm going out
I'm gonna drink myself to death
And in the crowd
I see you with someone else,
I brace myself
Cause I know it's going to hurt
But I like to think at least things can't get any worse

No home,
I don't want shelter
No calm,
Nothing to keep me from the storm
And you can't hold me down
'Cause I belong to the hurricane
It's gonna blow this all away

I'm going out
I'm gonna drink myself to death
And in the crowd
I see you with someone else
I brace myself
Cause I know it's going to hurt
But I like to think at least things can't get any worse

I hope that you see me
Cause I'm staring at you
But when you look over
You look right through
Then you lean and kiss her on the head
And I never felt so alive, and so... dead.

I'm going out
I'm gonna drink myself to death
And in the crowd
I see you with someone else
I brace myself
Cause I know it's going to hurt
I'm going out, woah-oh-o

I'm going out
I'm gonna drink myself to death
And in the crowd
I see you with someone else
I brace myself
Cause I know it's going to hurt
I'm going out, woah-oh-o
I'm going out, woah-oh-o
I'm going o-o-o-o-o-o-out
I'm going out, woah-oh-o
I'm going out

Florence + The Machine - Where Are Ü Now (Skrillex and Diplo cover)

Počalji od ms.k taj Uto Sep 29, 2015 11:19 am



Where Are Ü Now (Skrillex and Diplo cover)

Where are you now that I need you?
Where are you now that I need you?
I need you the most
When you broke down I didn't leave you
I stayed by your side
So where are you now that I need you?
I need you the most

I gave you attention when nobody else was paying
I gave you the shirt off my back, so what you saying?
To keep you warm
I showed you the game everybody else was playing, that's for sure
And I was on my knees when nobody else was praying, oh Lord

Where are you now that I need you?
Where are you now?
Where are you now that I need you?
I need you the most
When you broke down I didn't leave you
I stayed by your side
So where are you now that I need you?
I need you the most

I gave you my heart when you said yours was broken
Gave you the key when the door wasn't open, just admit it
See, I gave you faith, turned your doubt into hoping, can’t deny it
Now I’m all alone and my joys turned to moping
Tell me, where are you now that I need you?
Where are you now?
Where are you now that I need you?
Couldn't find you anywhere
When you broke down I didn't leave you
I was by your side
So where are you now that I need you?
Where are you now?

I was by your side
I was by your side
So where are you now?
Where are you now that I need you?

Florence + The Machine - Delilah

Počalji od Still_dreaming taj Čet Okt 29, 2015 8:11 am

Delilah


I'm drifting through the halls with the sunrise
(Holding on for your call)
Climbing up the walls for that flashing light
(I can never let go)

Cause I'm gonna be free and I'm gonna be fine
(Holding on for your call)
Cause I'm gonna be free and I'm gonna be fine
(Maybe not tonight)

Now the sun is up and I'm going blind
(Holding on for your call)
Another drink just to pass the time
(I can never say no)

Cause I'm gonna be free and I'm gonna be fine
(Holding on for your call)
Cause I'm gonna be free and I'm gonna be fine
(Maybe not tonight)

It's a different kind of danger
And the bells are ringing out
And I'm calling for my mother
As I pull the pillars down
It's a different kind of danger
And my feet are spinning around
Never knew I was a dancer
'Till Delilah showed me how

Too fast for freedom
Sometimes it all falls down
These chains never leave me
I keep dragging them around

Now I'm dancing with Delilah and her vision is mine
(Holding on for your call)
A different kind of danger in the daylight
(I can never let go)
Took anything to cut you, I can find
(Holding on for your call)
A different kind of a danger in the daylight
(Can't you let me know?)

Now it's one more boy and it's one more lie
(Holding on for your call)
Taking the pills just to pass the time
(I can never say no)

Cause I'm gonna be free and I'm gonna be fine
(Holding on for your call)
Cause I'm gonna be free and I'm gonna be fine
(Maybe not tonight)

It's a different kind of danger
And the bells are ringing out
And I'm calling for my mother
As I pull the pillars down
It's a different kind of danger
And my feet are spinning around
Never knew I was a dancer
'Till Delilah showed me how

Now I'm dancing with Delilah and her vision is mine
(Holding on for your call)
A different kind of danger in the daylight
(I can never let go)
Took anything to cut you, I can find
(Holding on for your call)
A different kind of a danger in the daylight
(Can't you let me know?)

Strung up, strung out for your love
Hang in, hung up, it's so rough
I'm wrung and ringing out
Why can't you let me know?

Strung up, strung out for your love
Hang in, hung up, it's so rough
I'm wrung and ringing out
Why can't you let me know?

It's a different kind of danger
And the bells are ringing out
And I'm calling for my mother
As I pull the pillars down
It's a different kind of danger
And my feet are spinning around
Never knew I was a dancer
'Till Delilah showed me how

Too fast for freedom
Sometimes it all falls down
These chains never leave me
I keep dragging them around



Potpuno orgazmičan spot! I pesma, naravno!

Florence + The Machine - Between Two Lungs

Počalji od Still_dreaming taj Ned Nov 01, 2015 12:26 am

Between Two Lungs

Between two lungs it was released
The breath that carried me
The sigh that blew me forward

'cause it was trapped
Trapped between two lungs
It was trapped between two lungs
It was trapped between two lungs

And my running feet could fly
Each breath screaming: "We are all too young to die!"

Between two lungs it was released
The breath that passed from you to me
It flew between us as we slept
That slipped from your mouth into mine
It crept between two lungs
It was released
The breath that passed from you to me
It flew between us as we slept
That slipped from your mouth into mine
It crept

'cause it was trapped
Trapped between two lungs
It was trapped between two lungs

Gone are the days of begging
The days of theft
No more gasping for a breath
The air has filled me head to toe
And I can see the ground far below
I have this breath and I hold it tight
And I keep it in my chest with all my might
I pray to god this breath will last
As it pushes past my lips
As I...
Gasp,
Gasp.

Mnogo mi se dopao ovaj intervju koji je preneo portal Vijesti.me.

Zvijezda koja je htjela da bude zoolog

‚‚Sve što mi se dešava se dešava sa razlogom i pored toga što se zato ponekad ne osjećam dobro", kaže 29-godišnja Florens Velč.

Rođena u Londonu, 29-godišnja Florens Velč je pjevačica benda ‚‚Florence and the Machine”. Njen debi album ‚‚Lungs" 2009. je dobio Brit nagradu za najbolji album. Ove godine bila je hedlajner na Glastonberi festivalu, a njeno najnovije izdanje ‚‚How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful" je nominovano za Merkuri nagradu. Pjevačica je za ‚‚Gardijan" odgovarala na pitanja fanova.

Kad si bila najsrećnija?

Kad lunjam ili dok nastupam. Ne znam kakvom osobom me to čini.

Koju od živih ličnosti obožavaš i zašto?

Moju malu sestru Grejs. Koliko ja nisam sposobna i mirna, toliko ona jeste.

Što ne voliš kod sebe?

Egocentričnost.

Kad si se prvi put postidjela?

Prije oko pet godina. I dalje nisam spremna da pričam o tome, ali u pitanju je izlazak sa momkom.

Nekretnine na stranu, što je najskuplje što si kupila?

Ušla sam pijana u prodavnicu u kojoj se prodaje vintidž dizajnerska odjeća i sljedećeg jutra sam se probudila grleći "Šanel" torbu i noseći na sebi bundu. I dalje me je sramota da ikome kažem koliko su me koštale te stvari. :buahahhaha:

Koja ti je najvrijednija stvar koju posjeduješ?

Moja sveščica sa tekstovima pjesama. :tiktak:

Da možeš da biraš, koju bi super moć imala?

Da mogu da zaspim kad god mi to zatreba i da spavam tačno onoliko koliko je potrebno.

Što te čini nesrećnom?

Moj mozak. :tiktak:

Koji je tvoj omiljeni miris?

Miris nekoga koga voliš. :tiktak:

Što si htjela da budeš kad porasteš?

Zoolog ili sekretarica.

Koja knjiga ti je promjenila život?

Prva koju sam uzela u ruke. U vrtiću su me jednog dana zaboravili u uglu gdje su stajale knjige i pročitala sam svaku knjigu sa police, jednu po jednu. :tiktak:

Što je najgore što ti je neko rekao?

Kad su mi rekli da mi je oca udario automobil dok sam bila na turneji.

Kome bi najviše željela da kažeš da ti je žao?

Nekima od mojih bivših momaka.

Ko je najveća ljubav tvog života?

Mislim da to tek treba da se otkrije.

Kad si doživjela najljepši poljubac u životu?

Kad sam bila pijana na kućnoj žurci, imala sam 17 godina.

Jesi li ikada nekome rekla da ga voliš, a da to nisi mislila?

Ne. Uvijek sam to osjećala u datom trenutku.

Koju riječ ili frazu previše koristiš?

"Koji je pasvord za internet ovdje?"

Koje je tvoje najveće razočarenje?

Što nikad nisam dobila glavnu ulogu u školskom mjuziklu.

Kad bi mogla što bi promjenila iz svoje prošlosti?

Vjerovatno par pijanih incidenata, ali bih zadržala bundu. :D

Koliko često imaš seks?

Nisam osoba za jednu noć, tako da zavisi od toga jesam li u vezi i na turneji.

Kad si bila najbliža smrti?

U danima kad sam se žestoko provodila, možda i previše blizu.

Koja je najbitnija lekcija koju si naučila u životu?

Da sve što mi se dešava se dešava sa razlogom i pored toga što se zato ponekad ne osjećam dobro.

Gdje bi najviše voljela da budeš sada?

Uvijek sam na putu, tako da bi bilo lijepo biti u svom domu u Londonu.

I moja dva dodatka:

Odgovor na pitanje da li voli Doktor Hua


I za slučaj da neko ne zna, Florens je nominovana za 5 Gremija ove godine.

Ovi fantastični stihovi izgovaraju se u spotu za "Queen of Peace" i "Long and Lost" i nisam ih razumeo sve dok mi ih drugg nije pokazao, a pokušao sam da izguglam čim je spot izašao. Prvi deo izgovara se na kraju prve pesma, a drugi na kraju druge. Ovo je čista poezija, najjači savremeni stihovi koje sam pročitao! :kralj!:

To give yourself over to another body
That’s all you want really
But to be owned and consumed by another
To swim inside the skin of your lover
Not have to breathe, not have to think
But you can’t live on love, and salt water’s no drink



You’re dying of thirst so we feast on each other
The sea is a still and violent mother
The blood round here pours down the water
Each wave a lamb lead to the slaughter
And like children that she just can’t teach
We break, and break, and break, and break ourselves upon the beach

Third Eye
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SCM8Qf3eGMQ

That original lifeline,
Original lifeline,
That original lifeline,
Original lifeline.

Hey, look up!
Don't make a shadow of yourself,
Always shutting out the light.
Caught in your own creation.
Look up, look up!
It tore you open
And oh, how much!

'Cause there's a hole where your heart lies
And I can see it with my third eye.
And oh my touch, it magnifies
You pull away, you don't know why.

That original lifeline,
Original lifeline,
That original lifeline,
Original lifeline.

Hey, look up!
You don't have to be a ghost,
Here amongst the living.
You are flesh and blood!
And you deserve to be loved and you deserve what you are given.
And oh, how much!

'Cause there's a hole where your heart lies
And I can see it with my third eye.
And oh my touch, it magnifies
You pull away, you don't know why.

That original lifeline,
Original lifeline,
That original lifeline,
Original lifeline.

'Cause there's a hole where your heart lies
And I can see it with my third eye.
And oh my touch, it magnifies
You pull away, you don't know why.

That original lifeline,
Original lifeline,
That original lifeline,
That original lifeline.

'Cause your pain is a tribute
The only thing you let hold you
Wear it now like a mantle
Always there to remind you

But your pain is a tribute
The only thing you let hold you
Wear it now like a mantle
Always there to remind you

I am the same, I'm the same
I'm trying to change.
I am the same, I'm the same
I'm trying to change.
I am the same, I'm the same
I'm trying to change!

'Cause there's a hole where your heart lies
And I can see it with my third eye.
And oh my touch, it magnifies
You pull away, you don't know why.

I am the same, I'm the same
(That original lifeline)
I'm trying to change.
(Original lifeline)
I am the same, I'm the same
(Original lifeline)
I'm trying to change.
(That original lifeline)
I am the same, I'm the same

I'm trying to change

Počalji od polly88 taj Čet Avg 18, 2016 11:42 pm

Florence + The Machine objavili su mini izdanje s tri nove pjesme koje će se naći u igrici Final Fantasy XV: "Too Much Is Never Enough", "I Will Be" i obrada Ben E. Kingove "Stand By Me".



Too Much Is Never Enough

And the crown it weighs heavy
'Till it's banging on my eyelids
Retreating in cover and closing the curtains
One thing's for certain, oh
A year like this passes so strangely
Somewhere between sorrow and bliss

Oh, who decides from where up high?
I couldn't say "I need more time"
Oh, grant that I can stay the night
Or one more day inside this life

Too much, too much, too much, too much, too much
Never enough
Too much, too much, too much, too much, too much
Never enough
Too much, too much, too much, too much, too much
Never enough
Too much, too much, too much, too much, too much
Never, never, never enough

Oh, you wondrous creature
Coming up who we are
Cause I'm retreating in covers and closing the curtains
One thing's for certain, oh
A year like this passes so strangely
Somewhere between sorrow and bliss

And who decides from where up high?
I couldn't say "I need more time"
Oh, grant that I can stay the night
Or one more day inside this life

Too much, too much, too much, too much, too much
Never enough
Too much, too much, too much, too much, too much
Never enough
Too much, too much, too much, too much, too much
Never enough
Too much, too much, too much, too much, too much
Never, never, never enough

And who cares about the thing I did that night?
So what? Maybe Luna had it right
And who cares if I'm coming back alive?
So what? 'Least I have the strength to fight

Too much, too much, too much, too much, too much
Never enough
Too much, too much, too much, too much, too much
Never enough
Too much, too much, too much, too much, too much
Never enough
Too much, too much, too much, too much, too much
Never, never, never enough

One other year; a hundred flags flying in a field
Time to let go of me
One other year; a hundred flags flying in a field
Time to let go of me
A hundred flags flying in a field
Time to let go of me
One other year; a hundred flags flying in a field

Počalji od ms.k taj Pon Avg 29, 2016 8:00 am


Wish That You Were Here

I tried to leave it all behind me
But I woke up and there they were beside me
And I don't believe it but I guess it's true
Some feelings they can travel too
Oh there it is again sitting on my chest
Makes it hard to catch my breath
I scramble for the light of change

You're always on my mind
You're always on my mind

And I never minded being on my own
Then something broke in me and I wanted to go home
To be where you are
But even closer to you you seem so very far
And now I'm reaching out with every note I sing
And I hope it gets to you on some pacific wind
Wraps itself around you and whispers in your ear
Tells you that I miss you and I wish that you were here

And if I stay oh I don't know
There'll be so much that I'll have to let go
You're disappearing all the time
But I still see you in the light
For you the shadows fight
And it's beautiful but there's that tug in the sight
I must stop time traveling you're always on my mind

You're always on my mind
You're always on my mind

And I never minded being on my own
Then something broke in me and I wanted to go home
To be where you are
But even closer to you you seem so very far
And now I'm reaching out with every note I sing
And I hope it gets to you on some pacific wind
Wraps itself around you and whispers in your ear
Tells you that I miss you and I wish that you were here

We all need something watching over us
Be it the falcons the clouds or the cross
And then the sea swept in and left us all speechless
Speechless

And I never minded being on my own
Then something broke in me and I wanted to go home
To be where you are
But even closer to you you seem so very far
And now I'm reaching out with every note I sing
And I hope it gets to you on some pacific wind
Wraps itself around you and whispers in your ear
Tells you that I miss you and I wish that you were here

Wish that you were here
Wish that you were here
Wish that you were here
I wish that you...

FLORENCE WELCH, BOOK CLUB ENTHUSIAST, GETS CANDID ABOUT THE LITERATURE THAT CHANGED HER LIFE

Author: Emilia Petrarca
Source: wmagazine.com

Funnily enough, it was during a deep dive into Gucci designer Alessandro Michele's follows on Instagram that I discovered that Florence Welch, the 30-year-old British singer, has her own book club. And four years ago, it was on Twitter that Welch herself discovered that her fans had created a book club in her honor called Between Two Books, which, being an avid reader, she was thrilled to get involved with. "This is definitely my favorite part of the internet," she said about the club, which has now hosted the likes of Zadie Smith and Donna Tartt.

Welch is constantly posting what she's reading on Instagram, and has been a self-described bookworm all her life. Here, she gets candid about the literature that changed her life, the poems that made her cry, and how book clubs are a safe space for people like her.

When did you learn about the Between Two Books book club that your fans created? On Twitter! When I was on tour about four years ago, I saw some fans tweeting about maybe starting a book club. I just said it was a great idea and I’d love to help them and be involved somehow. I recommended the first book for them, which was Opposed Positions by Gwendoline Riley, and it took off from there.

How does the book club choose which books to read next? What was the last one everyone read, and what are you reading now? Well it began from me choosing books that I really liked. But actually I started to find it more fun and interesting to get people to recommend books. We’ve had a few guest recommendations so far. The last guest recommendation we had was from Nayyirah Waheed, who is an incredible poet, and she recommended a book called Bone, which is another book of poetry, by Yrsa Daley-Ward. It’s been one of my favorites so far. But it’s not just authors. At the moment we have Adwoa Aboah who founded “Gurls Talk.” She has recommended the current books, which are Tupac Shakur’s book of poetry, The Rose That Grew from Concrete, and Geek Love by Katherine Dunn, which I have been wanting to read for a really long time. I’m always fascinated by what books people like and what they are reading, so this gives me a great excuse to ask people I love and respect what books have really affected them.

Are you involved with the discussions? How do you participate? The girls who run the club have set up a Facebook group where people can participate and chat about the books. I think what’s really nice about Between Two Books and what I treasure is that it’s not about me. It is something set up by fans for fans. I like to take a back seat and allow the book clubbers to discuss things amongst themselves. However, I will participate when I’m asked. If, for example, we are interviewing one of the authors I will ask the questions on the fans' behalf. For our last book, Yrsa Daley-Ward answered a lot of the book clubbers' questions including mine, and on behalf of the book club I’ve interviewed Donna Tartt, which was a huge honor, as I am kind of obsessed with her… so that’s how I get involved.

Why do you think book clubs are so important? I think reading is essentially a solitary activity. Growing up, I used reading as a form of escape. I was shy and sensitive, and so reading gave me a safe space. It’s a huge generalization to say that all readers are introverts, I’m sure there’s a lot of extroverted bookworms out there, but for me it’s nice to know people of similar inclinations can actually come together in a social way and talk about something that is inherently solitary. Between Two Books has a really good energy I think. I try not to spend too much of my life online — having a pretty addictive personality, it's not great for my head — but this is definitely my favorite part of the internet.

Approximately how many books do you think you read every month? I don’t know?! I usually have quite a few on the go at the same time so maybe two to three a month, but I wouldn’t finish them all.

The last book you read, and what you liked about it: The last book I read was Tristimania: A Diary of Manic Depression by Jay Griffiths, and it totally blew me away. The beauty with which she describes what must have been one of the darkest times in her life is utterly enthralling, and the connections she makes throughout, finding meaning and poetry at the outer edges of her sanity… It’s hard to describe it properly to do it justice. My grandmother had manic depression and actually killed herself when I was 14, so it is a subject close to my heart. This book was given to me by one of the Between Two Books girls, so I really treasure it.

What you’re reading right now and what made you want to pick it up? I’m reading A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara right now because its been recommended to me by so many people, and I’m also reading Geek Love and The Rose That Grew from Concrete, as they are the books my friend Adwoa kindly recommended to the book club.

Literary character(s) you most relate to:
It’s hard because essentially when I’m reading a book I’m trying to lose myself rather than find myself, so I don’t know? I get so absorbed in a character, and it’s nice to get to a place where you feel like you don’t exist. But then their revelations become your revelations, and you don’t realize that it was teaching you things all along, and somehow you have been changed. There was a passage at the end of The Ice Age by Kirsten Reed where the character in it talks about having a moment of realization that if she just stepped out into the road and was hit by a bus, she’s essentially just flesh and bones and would disappear:

“I waited on the corner of Bond St., on the Bowery, for a truck to pass. It spluttered out smoke. It looked like the trail of its breath on a cold day. Right then it didn’t seem to matter if I waited for this big animated truck to pass, or walked out in front of it. I do just feel like wondering out into the traffic, there’s no denying that. Sometimes I get so tired of all the stuff cluttering up my brain, it’s relief to feel I could be reduced to so many pounds of raw, jiggling flesh that could just go thud and stop.”

I don’t think I’ve ever related to something so much in my life! Although I don’t know if I should be worried about that?! But I found it very shocking and sort of wonderful to read something that I thought was an entirely private thought.

Where are you most comfortable reading? At home, I guess! Now that I’m not touring, I get to spend more time there, which is nice.



Books your parents read to you as a child: Orlando (The Marmalade Cat) by Kathleen Hale and Little House on the Prairie by Laura Ingalls Wilder. I became really fixated on the Bible when I was about nine and I tried to get my dad to read it to me from cover to cover, but as a liberal man working in advertising, he was not very impressed! I think I got over it quite quickly when I realized how many “begats” there were.

Books that sparked your love of reading at a young age: Philip Pullman’s “Northern Lights” trilogy were the first books I remember being completely devoted to and waiting with baited breath for the next book to come out! I think it’s the first time I remember truly falling in love with characters in a book, like having a full-on relationship with them.

First thing you read in the morning: I would like to say that it’s something spiritual, about acceptance and handing it over, to keep myself on the straight and narrow, but usually it’s my emails.

Favorite bookstore(s): Shakespeare & Co. in Paris is really amazing. I get so lost in Paris, and that’s the one place I know how to find!

Do you ever listen to books on tape? If so, what are some of your favorites?
I don’t really do it anymore, but when I was little, I used to listen to Alan Bennett reading Beatrix Potter. That was meant to send me to sleep, but I vividly remember the click of the tape, and getting up to turn it over. I never really slept, I would just listen to Alan Bennett for hours, so I really associate his voice with comfort and childhood, but then I think everybody in the world does!

Books that changed your life: That’s a really hard question! There have been books that have had a profound effect on me at the time, and I remember thinking, “This is having a really profound effect on me!” So I guess that would be Cormac McCarthy’s The Road and Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston. I don’t know if it was life-changing, but most recently, a book that I loved so much, and really changed my idea of "What is a book? What is poetry? What is biography?" was The Sickbag Song by Nick Cave. It seemed to be a flowing piece of prose that was not one thing or another. It was mixed with fantasy, poetry and biography. I really loved it, and it made me think about perhaps writing some poetry of my own.

Any memorable lines from books that you can recite on the spot? When I was trying to be a pseudo-rebellious teenager, I remember I memorized the whole of that Philip Larkin poem “This Be The Verse” with the opening line “They fuck you up, your mum and dad!”

Do you prefer a certain genre? And why? Right now, I’m reading a lot of poetry. There seems to be a lot of really exciting female poets out there like Mira Gonzalez, Ysra Daley-Ward, Nayyirah Waheed, Rupi Kaur, Robert Montgomery. I’ve been really getting into their work. Jay Griffiths talks in Tristimania about poetry being a kind of shamanism. I really feel that in their work, they are channeling and revealing truths.

Any favorite poems? I recently stumbled back across the Siegfreid Sassoon poem “Everyone Sang” and I cried when I was reading it. In fact, it makes me cry still, it is transcendentally beautiful, about people singing in the trenches of World War I.

“Everyone suddenly burst out singing,
and I was filled with such delight
As prisoned birds must find in freedom
Winging wildly across the white
Orchards and dark-green fields; on and on and out of sight.
Everyone’s voice was suddenly lifted;
And beauty came like the setting sun
My heart was shaken with tears, and horror
Drifted away…O’ but everyone
Was a bird, and the song was wordless; the singing will never be done.”


The Ted Hughes book of poetry, Birthday Letters, which he wrote for Sylvia Plath, is an incredible collection. Community from Yrsa Daley-Ward’s book Bone really spoke to me. I think that’s what’s good about poetry. Sometimes it seems to tell you something about yourself that you didn’t really know until you saw it written down by someone else.

And the last book that made you cry? There are books that I can remember having a visceral reaction to in the past and I suppose those are the ones that have had a profound affect on me as well. They include Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides, The Road, and Their Eyes Were Watching God. I remember reading them on separate occasions and hysterically sobbing into them.

Would you ever like to write your own book? I don’t know, because when I write songs I have a very specific voice and that voice goes with song. But actually I don’t know what I would sound like written down on paper. I don’t know who that person is. The song person has quite grand ideas, and prophesizes, and knows what’s going on, but I think my own voice is a lot more unsure, so it would be finding a way to express that. And because it’s me, I am obviously unsure! Singing feels safe, but day-to-day me is not as self-assured as the songs themselves.

Florens se rasplakala na aerodromu


She's in the middle of a busy touring schedule which has seen her jet-set around the globe in recent weeks.

And after another huge performance in Montreal on Friday night, it was time for Florence Welch to head off for the next location.

But the Florence + The Machine singer was spotted at the Canadian airport on Saturday looking very emotional, sobbing after an apparent problem at check in.



Florence had performed at the Osheaga Music and Arts Festival on Friday, and was seen heading to the airport on Saturday in time to head to Chicago for another gig at Lollapalooza festival on Sunday.

The 28-year-old looked in good spirits as she arrived at the airport for her flight, flashing a smile as she strolled through the terminal.

The Brit singer showed off her signature boho style in flared jeans paired with a sheer printed shirt, which was tucked into her belted denims.

A pair of heeled boots, a wide brimmed feathered hat and retro shades finished off the chic ensemble.



While Florence seemed relaxed at first, once she got to the check in counter, the red head was seen looked worried before covering her face with her hands as she burst into tears.

The emotional star was soon sitting cross-legged on the floor as the tears continued. A representative for Florence has been contacted by MailOnline for comment.

It's been an exciting time for the star, who as well as festival gigs and the start of the band's How Big tour this September, has released an epic new music video for two tracks from bestselling album How Big How Blue How Beautiful.



The stunning new short film for LP tracks Queen of Peace and Long & Lost puts the two songs back to back as the Florence + The Machine singer and the windswept Scottish landscape take centre stage in the haunting visuals.

The ten minute video is the latest installment of Florence's Odyssey saga created with director Vincent Haycock, who also collaborated with the singer on four other videos from her 2015 album, shooting clips for How Big How Blue How Beautiful, St Jude, What Kind of Man and Ship to Wreck.

The film, which details a troubled love affair, comes after Florence admitted to Billboard ahead of the release of How Big How Blue How Beautiful this year, that her third album was written during a difficult time in her rollercoaster relationship with events organiser James Nesbitt.



'Without the structure of touring, you have to face your own chaos. I was playing gigs non-stop since I was 21,' she said. 'When I was left to my own devices, I realised I was f**king everything up.'

'I was in and out of a relationship, in and out of drinking too much. It was like constantly picking yourself up and then dropping yourself, picking yourself up and dropping yourself. And that was exhausting.'

Welch continued, '[The album is] definitely not about trying to be vindictive. It's about being honest. This could've been a break-up record. But it was much more about trying to understand myself.' She explained, 'I was in this purgatory with this man. That push and pull thing where you are just stuck and you're like, "Why do we keep doing this to each other?'''



The singer, who headlined Glastonbury last month, revealed that her close friend Taylor Swift offered her advice while she was writing the album, telling her that 'you must sing about what's happening in your life'.

Florence Welch on alcohol, new music and her search for serenity


Florence Welch is nervous. “I get very anxious in interviews,” she says, her pale cheeks flushed, her dark eyes shining. “I’ve always felt overwhelmed by my emotions. Even sitting here now I want to cry and I don’t know why.”

We are sitting side by side on a yellow striped sofa in the front room of the Florence and the Machine singer’s south London home, a small Georgian cottage fitted out in racing greens and walnut browns, patterned rugs and antique fittings. Gilt framed artworks crowd the walls, vintage bric-a-brac covers every surface, and countless books are densely packed on to shelves or stacked in perilous ziggurats around the floor.

Volumes by American writers like Lorrie Moore, John Berryman and Patti Smith rub spines with the poetry of TS Eliot and a handsome edition of Mary Beard’s history of Pompeii. Welch catches me admiring this distinctly esoteric library and laughs. “I hid the self-help books before you got here,” she says.

Dressed in a delicate floral shirt, her (dyed) red hair tied up in braids, she is pale, slender, strikingly beautiful – and evidently anxious. “I find it easier to explain myself in music than in person,” she says. “Songs are like protective talismans. In daily life, I’m much more unsure and shy.”

In person she is unrecognisable as the superstar performer who had the Glastonbury crowds eating out of her hands in 2015. Under the guise of Florence and the Machine (a solo project, despite the name) she has released three critically acclaimed, albums – Lungs (2009), Ceremonials (2011), and 2015’s How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful – which topped charts on both sides of the Atlantic, a feat that this month earned her an Ivor Novello Award for International Achievement.

Welch’s music tends to be full-blooded and dramatic, driven by vigorous percussion, overlaid with towering walls of sound. Live, she matches the intensity of the music with the exuberance of her performance, coursing across the stage in flowing costumes, her extraordinary voice climbing from trembling intimacy to operatic bravado. Her speaking voice, by contrast, is high, soft and fluttery.

“On stage, something takes over,” she says. “When I sing there is a huge sense of release. I am very in love with the world and quite afraid of it as well; my feelings come on really strong. In real life I have to find a way to shut that down. Stage is a place where it all makes sense and people aren’t going to think I’m crazy.”

She describes her songs as a way of “hiding in plain sight… If I tell you that I’m struggling or in pain but dress it up and make the loudest noise ever, I can get it out. I can tell the truth but still hide behind the noise I’m making.” For How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful, producer Marcus DeVries encouraged her to scale things down and expose a more vulnerable side. “The thing that I have had to learn is restraint can be as effective as screaming the house down,” she says.

Music has always been Welch’s chosen form of expression. An acquaintance of mine lived next door to her family when she was growing up, and remembers young Florence always buzzing about, singing at the top of her voice.

“My childhood was just people shouting ‘Shut up, please!’ in the house, all the time. My mum would be trying to write another book on renaissance history and there would be me upstairs belting out show tunes. ‘Florence!’ ”

Welch was born in Camberwell, south London in 1986. Her mother, who seems to loom large in her life – photographs of her are dotted around the house – is Evelyn Welch, an American ex-pat currently Professor of Renaissance Studies and Vice-Principle for Arts and Sciences at King’s College, London. Her father, Nick Welch, is an advertising executive turned camp site manager. The family was affluent and well connected. One wall sports a framed caricature of her grandfather, Colin Welch, a former deputy editor of The Daily Telegraph. Satirist Craig Brown is an uncle.

She has two younger siblings, and three step siblings. In her early teens, her parents divorced and both have remarried. Her father now lives outside London but Welch chose her house on a small street in the shadow of a Victorian gasworks for its proximity to her mother’s home. Yet their relationship is clearly complex.

“My mother is a very intelligent, logical and highly academic woman. I was this unwieldy, freewheeling ball of emotion who wasn’t good at maths or spelling and just liked singing and dancing. This wasn’t my mother’s field of expertise. So I guess there was an early sense of not being quite understood. Where did this strange creature come from? You know, I laugh about it but it has been quite a painful thing. Music has been my source of self-preservation.”

She was educated at Alleyn’s School in Dulwich, where she earned a reputation as a high achiever. She briefly went on to Camberwell College of Arts but dropped out to pursue a career in music. “There was a big scene of gigs and squat parties, and I just wanted to join in. I used to sing a cappella at open mic nights. I didn’t have a plan. I just wanted to see if I could do what all the boys were doing.”

She says she never even considered the possibility of finding international success but when she first took her music to America, she immediately found it to be a very welcoming place.

“I think America finds praise easier by nature,” she says. “England’s sort of like the loving and essentially very supportive parent that also wants to make sure you don’t get too big for your boots. No compliment comes without a slight criticism or a joke.”

This, she says, quite “literally describes my actual parents, so if I’ve just projected on to the whole country I sincerely apologise. Living and working in England is very grounding. I worry if I lived too much in the States I could get rather caught up in myself. I need grey clouds and British reserve to balance me.”

If the musical side has always come easily to her, Welch frets about her lyrics to an almost neurotic degree. In the process of writing her songs, she fills notebooks of squared grid paper with words, phrases and drawings. “Writing on lines reminds me of getting things wrong in school,” she says. “Squares feel more comforting.”

She pulls a clutch of notebooks down from the bookshelf. The first, in which she wrote most of her debut album, is a green pad covered in stars and stickers, with “FLORENCE F------ HATES YOU” spelt out in tiny coloured letters. “I was young,” she blushes. Entire pages are taken up with embryonic lyrics felt-tipped in block capitals. One page sports a sketchy drawing of a bearded man with death rays coming from his eyes, under the phrase “the grey face of Christ”.

“Sometimes a whole song appears by magic, like it has poured out of the sky. And sometimes it’s a scrapbook of things that I’ve collected… a dream, a text message, a memory, and somehow when I put them all together it makes sense. I overthink everything else in my life, to the point of near exhaustion, so I try not to with songs. It’s an impulsive and instinctive process.”

At times, she has struggled with the whirlwind of fame that sped her to the heights of her profession and spun her off on tours around the world. Welch reacted to that first flush of success with heavy drinking and hard partying. “Hedonism was like a disguise,” she says. “I was a shy kid and I had to alter my personality. At first it’s freeing but then it becomes a prison of its own making. I thought you needed a hangover to write.”

After a tempestuous on-off relationship with event planner James Nesbitt ended in 2014, she wrote her third album in a state of heightened emotion, collaborating with close friends. “I’d be crying in the studio in a tracksuit. I really needed a lot of support to get things out.” But she quit drinking on the two-year tour that followed and pulled back from the brink.

“I’ve rediscovered my autonomy. I like riding my bicycle to the studio every day, coming home and cooking for myself, having a low-key life, reading a lot. I feel more creative than ever. The joy and ease with which it comes is unbelievable.”

She has taken a year off from touring and is in the early stages of a new album. She doesn’t want to give away too much about it but says it will explore the “black hole” into which she fell.

“I’m happier now, I’m content, but I’m never going to be fixed, ever,” she says. “I don’t think that’s how it works. A lot of things almost worked for me: partying almost worked, being famous and successful almost worked, the relationship almost worked… but it won’t sustain you. These are transient things. It’s working out how to be OK regardless.”

Singing and writing is her one constant balm. “Music always brings me joy, even if it’s about something very sad, or painful. I’m making my fourth album now, and I honestly can’t believe it. You feel like childhood dreams are not supposed to come true. But mine has.” She grimaces and giggles. “That’s so corny. But it’s nice to end the interview laughing. At the beginning I really thought I was going to cry.”

Florence + The Machine - Sky Full Of Song

Počalji od ms.k taj Čet Apr 12, 2018 2:09 pm



Sky Full Of Song

How deeply are you sleeping or are you still awake
A good friend told me you've been staying out so late
Be careful oh my darling oh be careful what it takes
From what I've seen so far the good ones always seem to break
And I was screaming at my father and you were screaming at me
And I can feel your anger from way across the sea
And I was kissing strangers I was causing such a scene
Oh, the heart it hides such unimaginable things

Grab me by my ankles I've been flying for too long
I couldn't hide from the thunder in a sky full of song
And I want you so badly but you could be anyone
I couldn't hide from the thunder in a sky full of song

Hold me down I'm so tired now
Aim your arrow at the sky
Take me down I'm too tired now
Leave me where I lie

And I can tell that I'm in trouble when that music starts to play
In a city without seasons it keeps raining in LA
I feel like I'm about to fall the room begins to sway
And I can hear the sirens but I cannot walk away

Grab me by my ankles I've been flying for too long
I couldn't hide from the thunder in a sky full of song
And I want you so badly but you could be anyone
I couldn't hide from the thunder in a sky full of song

Hold me down I'm so tired now
Aim your arrow at the sky
Take me down I'm too tired now
Leave me where I lie

I thought I was flying but maybe I'm dying tonight
I thought I was flying but maybe I'm dying tonight
And I thought I was flying but maybe I'm dying tonight
And I thought I was flying but maybe I'm dying tonight

Hold me down I'm so tired now
Aim your arrow at the sky
Take me down I'm too tired now
Leave me where I lie

Hold me down I'm too tired now
Aim your arrow at the sky
And take me down I'm too tired now
Leave me where I lie
