** Early on, band was once defined in ''their official bio'' as "Florence Welch and whoever is standing near her who can play an instrument". Her live shows occasionally featured musical friends such as Devonte Hynes (now better known as Blood Orange) to various members of the folk group Noah and the Whale. It also usually included Welch's frequent collaborator Isabella Summers, who is technically the "Machine" in the band name. Since the release of Lungs, the band has had a relatively stable lineup, and is now seen as a band led by Welch as opposed to one defined only by her.

* YoungerThanTheyLook: She's 29, but looks about ten years older; it's a bit difficult for some people to wrap their head around. Or to think that Florence is the same age as Music/LadyGaga.
