Florence + the Machine Perform at SiriusXM
Florence + the Machine stopped by SiriusXM to deliver an acoustic performance of ‘What the Water Gave Me,’ one of the many engaging songs from their majestic new album ‘Ceremonials.’
The performance on SiriusXM’s ‘The Spectrum’ features Florence Welch delivering alternately haunting and blistering vocals, accompanied by an acoustic guitar, a piano and a harp. The harp is a regular part of Florence’s band — another reason why they are one of pop music’s most creative acts.
The live performance is so spot-on and the audio quality so good that without the video proof, you’d swear it was a studio recording. Welsh repeatedly nails the chorus, “Lay me down / Let the only sound / Be the overflow / Pockets full of stones / Lay me down / Let the only sound / Be the overflow.”
‘Ceremonials’ debuted at No. 6 on the album chart last month, while both ‘What the Water Gave Me’ and ‘Shake It Out’ have charted in the U.S. and U.K. The band played ‘Saturday Night Live’ a few weeks back, delivering an equally impressive performance.
