Music | St Jude by Florence + The Machine

Broodingly nostalgic and brilliantly subdued is Florence + The Machine‘s latest offering from her forthcoming senior record, How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful, entitled ‘St. Jude’.

“Maybe I’ve always been more comfortable in chaos” absent-mindedly reflects Florence Welch over an eerie, narrowly-heard echoing heartbeat, on the beautiful ‘St. Jude’.  Complimented by the simplistic electronic line residing at the heart of ‘St Jude’; the pulsations send shivers coursing down spines and a wave of euphoria dancing in ears.

Where Florence + The Machine are concerned, this stripped-back track is the pinnacle of vulnerable; a sheer side to the band avid fans have yet to clench their jaws around properly… Until now.  The follow-up track to the previously-released ‘What Kind Of Man’ is a world-away from the likes of ‘Rabbit Heart (Raise It Up)’ and ‘Dog Days Are Over’, showing a stunning artist progression and overall maturity of sound.

If ‘St. Jude’ is anything to go by, How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful, is shaping up to be an unforgettable storm of endless possibility.
