Kiss With A Fist

By Florence & The Machine

London-based Florence And The Machine has Florence Welch at its core, with past collaborators including Dev Hynes (Lightspeed Champion and Test Icicles). 'Kiss With A Fist' is her début single, set for release in June through the Moshi Moshi Singles Club.

The single sees a punchy garage-blues racket (albeit acoustic led) accompaniment to Florence, who sticks to the fore throughout by belting out a soulful yet feisty Joplin-esque growl. You can even visualise the scowl on her expression as she spars: "You hit me once / I hit you back / You gave a kick / I gave a slap / You smashed a plate over my head / Then I set fire to our bed".

The folk blues backdrop to Florence And The Machine is further validated on the B-side when Florence belts out another powerful vocal on Cold War Kids cover 'Hospital Beds', this time over the top of a more subdued, but no less apt, acoustic guitar line.

File Florence and her band under a recommended listen.
