* SomethingCompletelyDifferent: Florence has recently stated her interest in dabbling with dance music; in 2012, CalvinHarris remixed "Spectrum" (giving Florence her first UK #1), and she returned the favor by lending vocals to his single "Sweet Nothing".

** Before her backing band settled down to a more or less stable lineup, The band was (and probably still is) basically "Florence, and whatever backing musicians are on hand at the time" - sometimes it was members of the Test Icicles or Noah and the Whale or maybe her some of her musician friends or sometimes lucky concert goers.

Added DiffLines:
* CarefulWithThatAxe: The bridge from "Strangeness and Charm" has Florence's voice rise suddenly to a shriek.

Added DiffLines:
* LighterAndSofter: ''How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful'' is this compared to ''Ceremonials''. --> "Ceremonials was so fixated on death and water, and the idea of escape or transcendence through death, but the new album became about trying to learn how to live, and how to love in the world rather than trying to escape from it."

** The ending of the video for "Never Let Me Go".

Drowning turns up in "Drumming Song", "Swimming", "Heavy In Your Arms", "What the Water Gave Me", "Never Let Me Go", "Heartlines" and "Ship to Wreck" (breaking the above order from Dravs in the process), along with being alluded to in the music video for "Rabbit Heart", and "Lover to Lover". It's implied in "Hurricane Drunk". Subverted with "How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful" itself which, despite sounding oceanic, is actually about the L.A. skyline.

* YoungerThanTheyLook: She's 28, 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.

Added DiffLines:
* LiteralSplitPersonality: "Ship To Wreck" has a passive Florence and a destructive Florence struggling to contain each other during the video.

i feel like no one on the internet acknowledges just how crazy this song is, someone else can tone my entry down or add to it but it just needed to be said.
Added DiffLines:
* GainaxEnding: Insofar as much as a song-- and album-- can have a Gainax Ending, Mother. The song starts out as a blues-esque number with a killer guitar-led chorus, then all of the sudden three and a half minutes in a [[spoiler: FRICKIN' FUZZ GUITAR COMES OUT OF NOWHERE AND STARTS EATING THE SONG ALIVE as Florence keeps singing louder and louder, with even more psychedelic instruments popping up.]] This sounds like it's going to come to a head at a certain point, but then... [[spoiler: this disorienting cymbal crash comes in at the five minute mark and the song literally sounds like [[YourHeadASplode it just exploded.]]]] And after all that, it manages to go on for another minute. It's a complete GenreShift, and an utterly fearless way to end an album, but still... what the fuck Florence?

* AcCENTUpontHEWrongSylLABle: An odd vocal choice all over the ''Ceremonials'' and "How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful" album, "Seven Devils", "Spectrum" and "Love To Lover" (from the former) and "What Kind of Man" and "Caught" (from the latter) are the most weirdly accented.
