Coldplay and Florence + the Machine are two absolute forces to be reckoned with, but which group will come out on top in PopCrush’s 2013 Battle of the Brits? This is gonna be a tight race!

Coldplay has had a successful career since they released their debut album, ‘Parachutes,’ in 2000. They have won seven Grammys and eight BRIT Awards, not to mention they have sold 60 million records worldwide. That’s a lot of Coldplay fans! Their albums have consistently hit No.1 all over the world and have been certified gold and platinum many times over.

But can Coldplay defeat Florence + the Machine? Flo Welch and her band of merry music-makers have had a much shorter career than Coldplay, but their accomplishments are many. Their album ‘Lungs’ was in the Top 40 of the U.K. charts for 65 weeks in a row, which shakes out to about a year and three months. They have also won two BRIT Awards and the highly-coveted Mercury Prize, and the band’s breakout song ‘Dog Days Are Over’ has sold over 2 million copies to date.

Make sure to vote for Coldplay or Florence + the Machine before the first round of polls close on July 17 at 2PM EST!
