(Vocal/instrumental group, 2007–present)

Florence Welch and her backing band won the prestigious Critic’s Choice Brit award in 2008. Debut album Lungs was released in July 2009, and was a slow burner; as her singles were released and her popularity grew, it gradually rose to No. 1 after 28 weeks in the charts. Her mix of soul and arty rock made her an instant hit with the British festival crowd; much was expected of album number two.
