Countdown: Women Who Rock - #13, Florence Welch

#13 - Florence Welch

At this moment in time, Florence Welch is the most intriguing woman in rock music. Last year's release of Lungs brought the flame haired wonder international acclaim and captivated listeners with beautifully crafted lyrics and fascinating musical arrangements.

She can be a vocal powerhouse ('You've Got the Love' and 'Cosmic Love'), a straight up rocker ('Kiss With a Fist') or she might just cut you up ('Girl With One Eye'). Who doesn't like a crazy chick? Fans can expect to hear some new material by the end of the year, with her sophomore album to be released in 2011. Florence has described the newer tracks as being a bit dancey but quite dark. 2011 can't come soon enough.

Key Tracks: Every single song on Lungs, especially 'You've Got the Love,' 'Cosmic Love,' 'Girl With One Eye,' 'Dog Days Are Over,' and 'Howl.'


  1. They were on Jules Holland the other night and were AWESOME! Her sound reminds me a lot of Kosheen/Moloko.

  2. I wish Kosheen were still big, I loved them.
