TF Daily Drop: King By Florence + The Machine

Today’s pick is King By Florence + The Machine. Listen now!

‘King’ challenges the perceptions of womanhood and sends a powerful message about women in the music industry. The track highlights the challenges  women face in the music business. It talks about the sacrifices a female artist has to make in order to have a sustaining career.

The artist says,

“As an artist, I never actually thought about my gender that much, I just got on with it. I was as good as the men and I just went out there and matched them every time. But now, thinking about being a woman in my 30s and the future, I suddenly feel this tearing of my identity and my desires.

That to be a performer, but also to want a family might not be as simple for me as it is for my male counterparts. I had modelled myself almost exclusively on male performers, and for the first time I felt a wall come down between me and my idols as I have to make decisions they did not.”

 

Florence + the Machine is an English indie rock band formed in London in 2007. Florence Welch leads the band, alongside keyboardist Isabella Summers, guitarist Rob Ackroyd, harpist Tom Monger, and a collaboration of other musicians. Their sound has been described as a blend of various genres, including rock and soul.

Their music is known for its dramatic and eccentric production style paired with Welch’s powerful vocals. Over the span of their career, Florence + The Machine has been nominated for six Grammy Awards, including Best New Artist and Best Pop Vocal Album. Moreover, the band played at the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards as well as the 2010 Nobel Peace Prize Concert.

We can’t wait for what Florence + The Machine has been up to behind the scenes, since their last release in 2018!
