Florence + the Machine

Any suspicions that the young British performer Florence Welch might be a one-hit wonder after the huge success of her 2009 single "Dog Days Are Over" were dispelled when last year's "Shake It Out" became an even bigger hit. The stately, flame-haired Welch has an unforgettably majestic voice that's more than able to carry her career, and her flowery, bohemian style has become something of a pop culture fixation; she's appeared on the covers of such fashion bibles as Vogue and Harper's Bazaar. Her latest musical output is the soaring fourth single from her Ceremonials album, "Spectrum (Say My Name)," complete with a glamorous David LaChapelle-directed music video and a club-ready Calvin Harris remix. Florence + the Machine's current tour leans a little bit more rock than pop though, with the New York quintet the Walkmen, who just released their seventh album Heaven, opening. ERIN K. THOMPSON
