Florence + the Machine puts out some absolutely beautiful and evocative music, so is it any surprise that I’m really looking forward to their upcoming album? In any case, another new song off the upcoming album was released! The third single off the album, but the first track on it, “Ship To Wreck” has a lot to live up to already, both in terms of what the group has put out in the past and the recent releases from Florence + the Machine.
The track starts off quickly with a blend off melodic guitars that carry the quick pace with ease. Florence Welch’s iconic voice cuts in easily, blending her vocals easily with the quick paced backing instruments. The song seems to build in energy little by little, mixing in several sounds that I’ve come to associate with Florence + the Machine’s general sound. Welch’s voice switches between the multiple ranges of the song’s vocals with ease, blending in the high notes with the lower ones easily, and switching from larger to smaller garnishes on her voice for bot ranges of notes. The song never looses its energy, but it cuts off rather suddenly at the end.
The song leaves you vibrating with its energy, and it certainly makes a great opening for whenever the album comes out because the silence after it ended just felt empty. It was a fantastic song with a lot of energy and I am completely hyped about what else is going to be on the upcoming album. How Big, how blue, How Beautiful is set to release at the very beginning of June.
