LIVE: NME Tour - Florence and the Machine & Friendly Fires @ Rock City, Nottingham - 12th February 2009

Considering that she hasn’t released a debut album, Florence and the Machine has certainly made a stance this year on BBC Introducing and performing on the NME’s sold-out tour. And my gosh did she champion the stage last night; with her eccentric, soulful voice dominating her backing quirky pop-rock band, filled to the brim with gritty guitars and mischievous on stage ‘kiss-chase’ sequences. Friendly Fires’, ahem...disco-funk-punk-pop music is, as evident, hard to pigeonhole, but it no doubt makes anyone want to dance. Ed Mac’s vocal range was a little weaker than hoped, but while there were a few moments of disappointment, there came moments of complete synth-infused bliss.
