Encouraging Words: Florence+ The Machine – “Hunger”

Florence + The Machine

“Hunger”

High As Hope

I love Florence; her voice, her style, her message of hope;  and “Hunger” is as great as any of music.  I love the fact that there is almost an under-production to this song, so that Florence’s voice overshines all else.  And the lyrics are so hopeful.  It is a perfect Baroque Pop song, similar to Kate Bush in her style.  I love this song.  If this is any foreshadow of the album, Florence + The Machine have reached the top again.  As her bio says about the song:

THIS SONG WAS NEVER MEANT TO BE A SONG, IT WAS A POEM WRITTEN IN AN EFFORT TO UNDERSTAND THE WAYS I LOOKED FOR LOVE IN THINGS THAT WERE NOT LOVE. I WAS NEVER THINKING IT WOULD BE A SONG BUT MAYBE THAT’S THE POINT. AND BY SINGING IT OUT LOUD, TOGETHER WE BECOME A CHOIR, A CHORUS HIGHER THAN THE HURT, LOUDER THAN LONELINESS.
