Florence and the Machine: 'Dog Days Are Over'

By
Released on Monday, Mar 22 2010

A lot has changed for Florence Leontine Mary Welch since 'Dog Days Are Over' first came out. Back in December 2008 she was a hotly-tipped singer-songwriter releasing singles on trendy indie Moshi Moshi. Fifteen months later and she's a two-time Brit winner with a triple-platinum debut album to her name and Dizzee Rascal on speed dial.

What hasn't changed, of course, is the wonder of 'Dog Days', which is now getting the post-TV ad reissue treatment. Beginning in lovely, viola-led fashion, it builds into a heart-quickening hymn to happiness as hand-claps, backing vocals, drums and piano collect around Welch's mighty wail. So stirring is the climax, in fact, that it could even rouse your dad from his easy chair after a boozy Sunday lunch. Well, possibly.
