Useless Magic Reviews
"To give yourself over to another body
That’s all you want really
To be out of your own and consumed by another
To swim inside the skin of your lover
Not have to breathe
Not have to think
But you can’t live on love
And salt water’s no drink
We're dying of thirst so we feast on each other

Florence Welch es sin duda una de mis personas favoritas. No es solo que adoro su música, su voz y la androginia de su aspecto (hablando por lo superficial), sino que hay una magia inigualable en sus letras.

If you are new to Florence, go listen to her records and fall in love with her! But for longstanding fans, this is such a special glimpse into the ...more
I'M SO EXCITED FOR THIS, MY ENTIRE MOOD SKYROCKETED WHEN SHE POSTED TO INSTAGRAM TODAY!!!! I don't think I can wait until June.
Considering how much I love Florence, how could I have loved this any less? It's like her soul.
