while at art school in her native south london, Florence Welch iced a sculptural cake for a project with a dismal premonition plastered across the top in frosting: “IT’S GOING TO GET WORSE“.
she also made a six-foot-wide artificial flower arrangement that spelled out “YOU’RE A TWAT” (which, she says, “was directed entirely at myself”).
let’s just say, from what i can hear, it definitely didn’t get worse for the emo little flo. as she branched out of the realm of contemporary avant-garde installation art, discovering her musical side seems to be a sign that things are only getting better. this song proves that her calling may, in fact, be in making sweet, sweet music rather than quasi-provocative angsty art pieces.
