Kiss with a Fist – Florence and the Machine

I kept hearing of this band Florence and the Machine and yet some how never heard any songs associated with them. I think I finally heard a song on Pandora or online randomly and was like “This is my kind of music!”

Though I do not condone abusive relationships, I like the contrast in this song of it being really up beat sounding and yet it is about this couple who are punching and kicking and setting beds one fire.

And I adore how this song reminds me of old school punk. I think it’s the guitar sound that really makes it sound like a punk song to me. I like how it sounds really loud and the drums are simple with really clean and crisp sound.

And the vocals have a low-fi quality that also adds to the punk like sound. And yet there is still something that brings it into the kind of folk sound. It’s an odd combination, but it works.
