Band: Florence & the Machine
Song: Girl With One Eye
Florence Welch has a big voice and she certainly isn’t afraid to use it. This perverse revenge fantasy is fueled by the singer, who’s masterful vocal performance brings the song’s clearly unstable protagonist to life. There’s a sneering rage to the vocals which simmers below the surface of the quiet verses until it downright explodes into a final stomping chorus, all of this coming over a wonderfully creepy, Minnie the Moocher-esque guitar riff, echoing with reverb at every sinister turn. Don’t make Flo cry.
