Most blogged artists: Florence and the Machine teases new track, album details
Thursday 15 September 2011
Florence and the Machine, fronted by English musician Florence Welch, is a hot topic in the music blogosphere after releasing a new single along with fresh details about their upcoming sophomore album, now titled
Ceremonials. Also claiming a top spot in The Hype Machine's most blogged artists chart on September 15 is Swedish music project Korallreven.
Set for an October 31 release, Florence and the Machine's (often stylized Florence + the Machine) new album will feature the already-released single "What the Water Gave Me" and a new track "Shake It Out." Of the new tune, blogger Kick Kick Snare writes that "the organ in the track is beautiful and not used often enough, the deep swelling sound is perfect with her clearing and power voice."
Korallreven is the project of Swedish musicians Marcus Joons and Daniel Tjäder (the latter is also a member of indie pop band The Radio Dept.). The band is prepping their debut full-length after releasing a mixtape, and in recent days the duo teased a new single called "As Young as Yesterday" featuring former Concretes lead singer Victoria Bergsman (who now has a solo project called Taken By Trees). "It's a shamelessly pretty whoosh of the sort of beach-pop that Sweden is currently cranking out at alarming rates," writes Stereogum. "It also has some serious drum-machine work."
