I think music should be scary. Music is an exorcism. — Florence Welch

Music is my way out. I keep things locked up and never say anything. I guess in order to say something to one person, I have to sing it to a couple of thousand. It doesn’t make for healthy relationships. — Florence Welch

I’d experimented with so many different types of music. I had these folky songs I’d written and recorded, but something wasn’t quite right. — Florence Welch

I love Lady Gaga and I love Katy Perry and R&B and rap music… I love big, American pop music. — Florence Welch

i think music should be scary music is an exorcism Florence Welch quote

I want people to get hit and caught by my music. — Florence Welch

I’m really careful with what the music gets put with, and we say no to so much stuff, loads of it, for things that might quadruple the sales of my album. But if it doesn’t fit then it doesn’t fit, you know? — Florence Welch

Music to me is so internal. It’s physical and it’s emotional. Whereas fashion is so much about the external that it’s almost like a break. It’s not inner turmoil. It’s total escapism. — Florence Welch

I can’t just have one painting–I need to cover the wall in paintings. It’s the same with my music. I want to mix everything together to create more. — Florence Welch

When something really hits me, it makes me want to either jump off something really high or lie down and be buried. I want people to get hit and caught by my music. — Florence Welch

The only music I was listening to for ages was old soul. So I wasn’t listening to a lot of new music–especially indie music. — Florence Welch

Maybe in music you’re making an auditory environment and maybe you change your environment around you to suit your own way. — Florence Welch


I feel things in quite an intense way. I’m not actually the most intense person. — Florence Welch

I look really odd in jeans and a hoodie–it doesn’t feel or seem right. — Florence Welch

I feel a responsibility to the fans who have paid to see me and I want to give as good a show as I possibly can. — Florence Welch

i feel things in quite an intense way i m not actually the most intense person Florence Welch quote

I like the idea of not being afraid of letting your imagination rule you, to feel the freedom of expression, to let creativity be your overwhelming drive rather than other things. — Florence Welch

Going to parties usually makes me feel depressed, just because I have such social fear after meeting people. — Florence Welch

Worst nightmares can also appear with your eyes open. — Florence Welch


I always wanted to sound like a man, like Jeff Buckley or Tom Waits. — Florence Welch

Lay me down, Let the only sound, Be the overflow, Pockets full of stones. — Florence Welch

i always wanted to sound like a man like jeff buckley or tom waits Florence Welch quote

I started off singing in church as a child. The sound of voices coming together, that was my first moment of touching something outside of myself. — Florence Welch

I’ve been thinking about songwriting more in terms of playing it live, and how it will sound as a band. — Florence Welch

I try to maintain a healthy dose of daydreaming, to remain sane. — Florence Welch

In Florence Welch Statements



Look, if Givenchy is going to lend you a dress, I’m not going to turn it down. I would wear that dress to just go out and buy a pint of milk if they would lend it to me. — Florence Welch

I used to dress like an eight–year–old boy. Traveling has inspired me to be more experimental. — Florence Welch

I like a house party and fancy dress, a big fan of fancy dress, like dress up, costume parties. — Florence Welch

I’ve got my ideal job. I like to sing, I like to dance, I like to bang drums and dress up, and someone pays me–it’s incredible. — Florence Welch


The stage is a place where I can be wholly myself. Even though you’re in front of people almost to be judged, it is a place without judgement. — Florence Welch

On stage, you can use your emotions. It’s the place where you can channel them. They have a purpose. — Florence Welch

The stage is the place I feel comfortable–it’s almost as if real life is where I feel most nervous. Conversations are a lot more nerve–wracking. — Florence Welch

What I really like seeing from the stage is people having their own moments, when people are doing some performance of their own. — Florence Welch

I think I should get a bigger between–the–song persona, so then I’m not wandering around the stage like some mad old auntie that’s saying hello to people and falling over. — Florence Welch

You know, people always ask, ‘What are you like offstage?’ And I always say, ‘Well, I’m completely normal and mellow.’ — Florence Welch


When you play, it’s like you know that there are people out there who are hearing it for the first time, and I think that’s really important. — Florence Welch

I get in fights with my sister all the time. She comes on the road with me and we fight–like sisters do. — Florence Welch

If you asked me to go back to being 14 or 15, I couldn’t–it was a terrifying time. I was so awkward in my own skin. I used to hide behind my hair because I was so ridiculously self–conscious. — Florence Welch

Being heartbroken is like having this really horrible freedom. You can be selfish with your thoughts, which can lead to manic creativity, but at the same time you’re just really miserable. — Florence Welch
