Not a fan of the drumming song video :o I dont think it's Florence, she's not a conventional pop star and I think the video portrays her that way.

would be great if i could understand what she's shouting most of the time, but Howl is a great tune.

eck
Aug 4th, 2009, 10:09 AM
I agree. Howl is a gem. But I don't get some of the lyrics, I read it up online, but some part is missing.

Begins after she sings about the curse that falls into young lovers, and turns them into hunters (for the second time).

Anyone care to enlighten me? :)

Jovana.
Aug 4th, 2009, 11:11 AM
^ After that I think she keeps saying "Hunter" or "Hunters" :scratch:

eck
Aug 4th, 2009, 11:16 AM
That was the first time. :p

Then she sings it one more time almost at the end :p

Jovana.
Aug 4th, 2009, 11:27 AM
ooooh I thought that was the second time :confused: nvm :o

oh yeah that part ... I can just get "sends his prayers by night , seal become my wolf" and then says smfin bout the moon :sobbing: I cant figure it out :o

eck
Aug 4th, 2009, 11:31 AM
It's OK ;)
I'll try and decipher it :)
I thought that part was gorgeous :D

Jovana.
Aug 4th, 2009, 11:35 AM
it really is a gorgeous part :D I'm just sorry I dont have enough skills to figure out the lyrics, and it's not written on any lyrics site :p that's just the beauty of her voice :drool:

eck
Aug 4th, 2009, 11:45 AM
Yes, she writes like someone I've never seen before. It's rather philosophical. :p
Love her. Every song has some thought put behind it. :worship:

Aug 4th, 2009, 02:19 PM
yeh florence is top notch

and is that part of howl where she says
"A man who is pure in heart and says his prayers by night
May still become a wolf when the the autumn moon is bright"

apprently she ripped it of someone elses poem or something, well not ripped it of but changed it

Haimar
Aug 4th, 2009, 03:08 PM
I discovered her recently with that super song 'A kiss with a fist is better than none' and I'm going to see her in about two weeks when she's coming to Pukkelpop!!!

eck
Aug 4th, 2009, 03:32 PM
A man who is pure in heart and says his prayers by night
May still become a wolf when the the autumn moon is bright

This is a slightly edited version of a poem repeatedly recited in The Wolf Man:

Even a man who is pure in heart and says his prayers by night
May become a wolf when the wolfbane blooms and the autumn moon is bright.

Yeah, no wonder it sounded familiar.
It was on Wikipedia :rolls:

Yes and she was the favourite :sad: But she was ecstatic for Speech Debelle. Speech Debelle is a hip hop act, her stuff is really 80s. I felt more sorry for Bar For Lashes...with 2 albums she's been nominated 2 years in a row and lost :tears:

The Mercury prize is a highly prestigious prize here in the UK & Ireland. Nominations are chosen by a selected panel of musicians, music executives, journalists and other figures in the music industry in the UK and Ireland. They select the best albums of up and coming artists of the past year. The winners receive Ł20,000 prize money and due to it's prestige their album sales usually soar.

Woow it looks like a missed opportunity, but I guess even a nominee will boost the cd sales :) I have to admit I don't have a real cd yet, but I promise I will buy one soon :p

I must say I love it, but it is most definitely my least fave song on her album lol. I am not worried, it's a sure hit. 6 months ago I was the only one in my school who knew her, now everyone does :speakles: So I am not worried :) Many artists sell many many albums with no singles success. Not forgetting Florence already has a top 20 hit :p and #2 in Ireland with Cosmic Love with no promo :eek:

I mean I know she's popular, but even I didn't expect her to be this popular :sobbing:

The organisation for selling was terrible too:
Tried to buy it online, but I had to jump through hoops in order to get it, and by the end it was all sold out.
Tried to call, but apparently the ticketing office was too busy.
Called a store to ask for availability, they told me it was selling fast. I went there 15 mins later..all sold out. :tape:

It's OK, I was so depressed yesterday, but at the end of the day, I'm happy for her success here. It doesn't matter if I see her or not. I wish I could, but I'll be waiting.

Although, there's a few options I can consider:
Sydney .... But that's quite expensive because of accommodation and etc.
Laneway Festival .... But that's quite expensive...but I'm sure she's gonna play 5 songs or so..and for 100 bucks that's impractical.

In other news, she's said to go back into the studios in January for a second album :woohoo:

Some big Florence news:

Hurricane Drunk is the next single off Lungs. It's OK I guess, though we all know Cosmic Love and Howl were better choices. Though I'm not complaining :angel:

You Got The Love is currently #5 in the UK charts, spurred by a campaign similar to Rage Against the Machine's "Killing In The Name"

Lungs is back to #2 in the charts, and it's competing with Vampire Weekend for #1 this week. It seems like the battle is VERY close.
I wished I could help. :sobbing:

Tune in to Radio 1 @ 7pm UK time today, where she'll be hosting a program, playing songs she loves. :hearts:

Yeah go and see her, it's totally worth it! On the other hand I'm doubting wether to go to her show in Gent in a few months or just wait for the festival summer to probably see her on one of the big festivals here in Belgium :confused:

Definitely go :lol: I got GaGa and Florence tickets around the same time. My worry was 'No matter what Florence does, GaGa will shit all over it'. Haven't seen GaGa yet (Feb. 22nd) but Florence will be a tough act to follow. Absolutely amazing! Best night of my life :D Don't miss this opportunity Gorecki :sad:

It will be so worth it :p My friend Michael (BartoliBabes) came and he wasn't much of a Florence fan but he loved it. My cousin came too and she is now IN LOVE with Florence. I don't think it would make a difference if you went alone, I was in a world of my own :sobbing: Totally ignored my friend & cousin except for the occasional 'Isn't she amazing?!!!'. Try and get a space towards the front of the stage :angel: Maybe bring her a present too :eek: She loves Teddy Bears & Whiskey :p

In addition she sang: If I had a Heart, Between Two Lungs, Kiss With A Fist, Ghosts, Blinding, Coffins
She didn't sing Bird Song :sobbing:
She had some sort of necklace "wardrobe malfunction"; the necklace was breaking, and she decided to take it off, break it to pieces and give it to the crowd :worship:
Those different spins she puts in the songs were amazing; most people sang to her songs, but not many knew the "live" versions
I think she had a tumble in Drumming Song...or maybe it was intentional
She sang Happy Birthday to the owner (?) of the place
She promised she'd come back :woohoo:
Again many knew her songs, even those on deluxe edition..which is not on sale here :devil:
They even knew her cover songs :eek:
She started at 10:10 finished at around 11:20. Best 1 hour ever.
Highlights for me were Drumming/Cosmic/Howl/Dog Days/Between Two Lungs/Rabbit Heart/Got The Love
In Dog Days, she wanted the crowd to jump, but management only allowed those on the floor to jump :rolls:

What made it better? :p Did she perform any new tracks?

Strangeness and Charm
Heavy In Your Arms

I dunno, I mean, in a way, I thought she couldn't get any better the first time I saw her, but there were some little pitch problems.
The last time I saw her, I went there at 7, and she only performed at 10 :help:

She was near perfect this time around. Performed at around 9. Played more songs. So sad it ended :sobbing:

Everything clicked. Blinding was pretty amazing. I still don't like Girl With One Eye :o


The Drums started the night, and they were really bad, but it's probably because of the mic because no one could hear what the singer was singing :o



As for the VMAs, I'm really happy for her, but I hated the new DDAO video :help:

Ciarán
Aug 3rd, 2010, 11:19 PM
I heard The Drums were pretty awful live :sobbing: We were extremely lucky to have The Temper Trap, they were amazing :p I'm jealous you got to hear Strangeness and Charm and Heavy In Your Arms :lol: Oh and I LOVE Blinding! And I wasn't too keen on the new DDAO video either :sobbing: Hate the blue backing dancers :o

eck
Aug 3rd, 2010, 11:30 PM
Yeah, I mean the Drums had some catchy songs which I've downloaded :p but it was so underwhelming for a band I've heard so much about :o

Florence was at the side of the stage dancing to their music though :p

It's pretty obvious the people there don't watch/pay attention to Twilight because the response when she was singing was kinda...subdued

People took Strangeness and Charm well. I was the only one who could sing the song :angel: But I was just mouthing the lyrics because I realised I can't sing :p

Blinding was amazing. Other than the usual hits she had, Howl and Blinding were also really well done.

I'm not sure if she was paying homage to Avatar in the video, but the blue dancers were creepy, as was the poofing act. :o
The old DDAO video was much better :sobbing: And I actually understood the logic :o

Updates:

First:

Shake it Out is apparently the official first single and will be premiered on Zane Lowe's show tomorrow (Wednesday) night on BBC Radio 1.

And here's what I've seen too from a website:

so we’ve just received a promo copy of a new track by the FLORENCE & THE MACHINE called SHAKE IT OUT.

the radio edit duration is 03:51 and the album version goes for 04:37

#nowplaying

lyrics include “i’ve been a fool and i’ve been blind, i can not leave the past behind” and there’s quite a lot of “whoa oh oh oh” in the outro.

that is all.

Second:

I'm abit worried about the album being brought forward, I'd love to see her get number 1, but then again Coldplay's album comes out the week before :o

And secondly, apparently there was a first listen for some people in UK...and based on what I've read (2 only though), they seemed to love it.



The album title is "Ceremonials", confirmed by Greg James.
He was at the album listening event, he said 7 songs were played. And he thought What the Water... was not the strongest song in the album.
And after every song, people were clapping.

Oct 31st just can't come any sooner.
