Two weeks after Lana Del Rey transfixed the British public and watching world with her stunning performance of Video Games, Florence Welch & her musical Machine last night returned to Holland to stake a claim in the plaudits stolen by the New York girl.

Singing What The Water Gave Me and No Light, No Light [below], the ‘lady with the harp’ delivered a near-motionless, typically angelic display. Both tracks are taken from Florence’s peach of a new album Ceremonials which was released on Monday.

    This song definitely stands out the most from the new album and Flo once again delivers it in such a beautiful manner! Absolutely adore this performance. Who’d have thought she’s only 25!?

      She does show maturity beyond her years and her vocals have definitely improved since her early NME tour days. Powerful chorus, I do like when it explodes into life on No Light. Interesting new direction for ceremonials: more gloom, less fun. Her costume is always a conservation-starter, product of her arty-farty background! What next for Welch? I heard (perhaps on the untrustworthy grapevine) some talk of an alter-ego?
