Florence Welch has praised the "exciting" surge in female popstars over recent years.

The Florence and the Machine singer shot to fame last year alongside the likes of Little Boots and La Roux with her triple platinum-selling debut LP Lungs. She admitted that she is happy to see women staking a greater claim in an otherwise largely male-dominated industry.

"I think it's a really exciting time for female musicians and there is a lot of support out there for them," the 22-year-old told ITN. "It was quite a masculine environment in indie world for ages.

"People were actually looking for something different - more feminine, moving away from guys with guitars. Now it's girls with keyboards."
