Last night, the 38th BRIT Awards took place at the infamous O2 in London, and wasn’t it just…eventful. From Kanye’s terrible *audio mute* performance to Madonna falling backwards off the stage, the BRITS never seem to be a smooth affair.
Hosted by Britain’s most loved TV presenters – Ant and Dec, the awards show kicked off with a bang assisted by none other than Taylor Swift. I’m not even ashamed to say it – I love Swifty, and as per usual her performance was spot on.
Finally, after almost a four year hiatus – Florence and the Machine are back, and boy am I glad. Zane Lowe premiered the groups new track – ‘What Kind of Man’ on Radio 1 last night, and unveiled the name and release date of the long awaited album – ‘How Big How Blue How Beautiful,’ which will be released in the UK on June 1, 2015.
‘What Kind of Man’ is everything we love about Florence and the Machine, and more. The haunting vocal from Florence Welch claims the identity of the track almost immediately, though it is clear that the group have opted for a more powerful classic rock sound, with searing guitar riffs to complement Welch’s commanding yet chilling vocal.
