I Like People Who’ve Seen Some Darkness

In the Woods

Flower crowns and flowy gowns. Enchanted forests where witches prowl and growl. Birds trapped in cages and love songs sung from broken rib-cages.

Album Review: Florence + The Machine – How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful

“She’s fragile and she’s ferocious” The dream world, a creation made of myth and melody. She is its mother, its creator; the designer of sun and sky, of storms and seas.
