Florence + the Machine is the work of British singer/songwriter Florence Welch, with 'the machine' being her (rotating) backing group, though the name originally referred to her original collaborator (and current keyboardist for her backing group) Isabella Summers when the group was "Florence Robot/Isa Machine" to be shortened to its current moniker. After her debut album ''Lungs'' made number one in the United Kingdom (six months after release, and repeatedly), she became one of 2009's frontrunners in a burst of popular, powerful female pop music. Her second album, ''Ceremonials'', switched tacks abruptly and took the world by storm in a burst of overpowering soul music.

They contributed the song "Heavy In Your Arms" to the ''Literature/{{Twilight}} Saga: Eclipse'' soundtrack, and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ROtBbOcdFxo performed a song for]] ''Film/SnowWhiteAndTheHuntsman''. One of their songs were also used in Series/{{Revenge}}'s finale, to great acclaim, and in a season finale of Series/{{Warehouse 13}}. Florence contributed her vocals to "Sweet Nothing" by Music/CalvinHarris, and he remixed "Spectrum" for radio. Both charted #1 in the UK.

King's "Stand By Me" is used in the video game ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXV''.

* PimpedOutCape: While singing "Shake It Out" on ''TheXFactor'', Florence wore a dress with six white capes held in place. She didn't move around a lot.

** 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.
