Amoeba Review

06/26/2018

They’ve conquered the airwaves and the festivals, raked in the awards, toured the world, and gotten the nod from Beyonce (who cited her full-throttle vocals as an inspiration). Now Florence Welch & company, especially her longtime co-writer and keyboardist Isabella "Machine" Summers, are back with High As Hope, the long-awaited follow-up to 2015’s How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful. Florence has always looked to continue the tradition of classic rock sirens like Grace Slick, Kate Bush and Siouxsie Sioux, and as she grows in confidence and experience she increasingly sounds ready to achieve that stature. Her songs express timeless themes, which as she points out haven’t changed much from medieval plainsong to modern soul: love and death, time and pain, heaven and hell. High As Hope tones down some of their usual Machine histrionics to achieve more focussed vulnerability and presence. New single "Hunger" is remarkably direct and intimate, exploring the universal search for love and the self-deception of feeling it when it’s not there, which can be even more isolating. Co-produced by Florence and Emile Haynie, with guests including Kamasi Washington, Sampha, Tobias Jesso Jr. and Jamie xx. Expanding and deepening a great traditional of powerful female expression in pop.
