"The music is so euphoric, as a way of battling the words. It's like an exorcism, beating it out with drums, shake this demon out, it's so visceral because the melancholy has to be drummed out. I can't let it sit inside me."
"I was going to call the record something a bit more desperate and angry about the things that are out of reach — but then I changed my mind, because over everything, over all the turmoil and the chaos that was going on, there was this big, beautiful hope which I think was what the album represented to me." Florence Welch
