Shake It Out – Florence + The Machine

I’ve liked Florence and the Machine since their first mainstream hit, Dog Days are Over.  They definitely have a different sound from most mainstream artists. Genres that they have been categorized under are indie rock, indie pop, alternative, and experimental. I can describe their sound as easy-to-listen, calm, art. With that being said I think we can agree that they have a unique sound (yes, I said unique). I’ve recently listened to their most current song, Shake It Out, from their newest album, Ceremonials. Shake It Out is a sad song gone happy. What I got from listening to it was that carrying your past is a burden and you just have to shake it off and be renewed. It is a positive motivational song that can fit well with anybody. I really like her voice in all of her songs; she has an echoing pitch that goes well with the instruments and intensity of the songs.
