Florence and the Machine

Howling or whispering her way between folk and punk – with quirky, arty pop flourishes in between – Florence Welch is the beautiful, flame-haired nutter who just won the Brits’ Critics Choice Award. Catch her live before she releases her debut album later this year, which she says sounds a bit like, ‘a choir, a harp, some metal chains and a piano all put through a car crusher, then hit with wooden planks really hard.’ But in a good way.

O2 Academy, Glasgow, Fri 30 & Sat 31 Jan.

Big blustering vocalist with a fine line in stage gear and one of the most distinctive voices in pop.
