** 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.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Because of a change in her sound to the one she became famous with, the indie rock-esque "Kiss with a Fist" has become this. The recording that appears on ''Lungs'' is almost identical (or ''is'') to the one that appeared on her 2008 debut single.

* 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.

** According to WordOfGod, Florence loves the subject of drowning. Mentioned by description in ''Ceremonials'' liner notes, she's fond of the ''jumping off the edge and "enveloping"'' feeling which drowning often described as being. She once said that as a child, she dived to the bottom of a swimming pool and, for a moment, felt like she could breathe, and she's been trying to recreate the feeling ever since. This is said to be similar to her relationship to music. It came to the point that the main producer for ''How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful'', Markus Dravs, forbade her from writing ''any'' songs about water. [[note]]''Queen of Peace'' does mention a boat.[[/note]\\

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" will be used in the upcoming video game VideoGame/FinalFantasyXV.
