Florence and the Machine’s New Feminist Sensibility

Florence Welch Performs in Central Park 2018

From the July 9 2018 issueof The Economist magazine: FLORENCE WELCH has made her name both as a hitmaker and as a kind of strong-willed sprite. Her belting alto, floor-length floral gowns, flowing red tresses and rhapsodic tambourine stand out in an industry which often places a premium on bare skin and over-sexualised lyrics. Now, in the era of #MeToo, Florence and the Machine go beyond wisp and whimsy.
