Serenade Me, Sinister



Using the Horror/Macabre Photography Gallery to bring you music, and mayhem, this week I will lull you to sleep (or to kill) with Florence and the Machine.

Florence and the Machine, stylised as Florence + the Machine) are an English indie pop band, consisting of lead singer Florence Welch and a collaboration of other artists who provide backing music.

Florence claims that her mother had a strong influence on her: after a visit to one of her mother's lectures as a teenager, Florence explained, "I aspire to something like that but with music. I hope that my music has some of the big themes — sex, death, love, violence — that will still be part of the human story in 200 years' time."

Welch has become a fashion icon, noticed for her red curls (although she is naturally a brunette) and a style that has been described as daring but nonchalant.

Florence Welch has been compared to other female singers such as Kate Bush, Siouxsie Sioux, PJ Harvey, and Björk.


Heavy in your Arms - Florence and the Machine:



I was a heavy heart to carry
My beloved was weighed down
My arms around his neck
My fingers laced to crown.

I was a heavy heart to carry
My feet dragged across ground
And he took me to the river
Where he slowly let me drown

My love has concrete feet
My love's an iron ball
Wrapped around your ankles

All this killing time?
Are you strong enough to stand
Protecting both your heart and mine?

Who's the killer in the crowd?
The one who creeps in corridors
And doesn't make a sound

This will be my last confession
I love you never felt like any blessing
Whispering like it's a secret
Only to condemn the one who hears it
With a heavy heart

No you can't have that! It has to be this one! :P

I'm kidding, but yes. Ever. Heavy in your Arms makes me...feel...weird, if that makes sense. That's what music should do. Make you feel different. It's so haunting. :)

I've never heard Hurricane Drunk, myself.

I do like haunting songs, pianos and cellos and such, people think it's weird, but eh, they don't have to listen to it. ;D

True that.

I am in love with haunting songs. I listen to a lot of gothic music because of it. I think they produce a mood that makes you both seriously morose and extremely in the mood for driving. To me, anything with well done percussion instruments is a step above the rest.
