Florence & The Machine has been on the receiving end of a bit of backlash of late. One website in particular decided it was a good idea to publish a preview of her debut album, Lungs, after one listen (to only part of the album) on crap speakers. We'll wait to hear the album in full on super-surround-sound speakers before we make up our minds if it's all the same to you.

You can hear her new single, Rabbit Heart, by venturing over to here and listening to Monday night's Steve Lemacq's show (it's on after about 25 minutes). If this all seems a bit of a hassle then don't bother, just wait until it's on youtube or, you know, the radio. We've heard it and these words sprang to mind; lush, epic, bit overblown (in a good way), grower, twinkly, pasta...the latter because it was dinner time when we heard it.

Proper journalism.
