Florence + The Machine: Influences

Florence + The Machine: Influences

Rock and soul's most passionate pipes rouse emotions you never knew existed. These are the voices that inspired Florence Welch, who combines Dusty Springfield's smoky delivery with Nina Simone's chilling articulation of every syllable. Welch and her band are unafraid to explore terrain as dark and otherworldly as Kate Bush's mystical reveries and David Bowie's freaky space adventures.
