Hear New Sound: Florence + The Machine's "Shake It Out"

The radio has more than its fair share of pop tart powerhouses to keep the mass mainstream's ears preoccupied these days, but it's still great to hear a few ladies out there are evening the playing field with an edgier side to offset their counterparts' soft-shelled sounds. 2009's Lungs introduced South London's Florence Welch and her project Florence + The Machine as a talented singer-songwriter with the potential to achieve huge crossover success on both sides of the pond in the rock and pop worlds. Judging by the latest single off her much buzzed about upcoming sophomore LP Ceremonials, that hype may be well warranted. "Shake It Out" is a fearless effort catapulted by flawless commercialized production and a soaring chorus punctuated by Welch's signature muscular vocals. Fan of Florence + The Machine or not, there's no denying that as far as singles go, "Shake It Out" has "hit" written all over it. Allow Ms. Welch and her Machine to rock your world...
