Heartlines

Album: Ceremonials (2011)
  • Speaking to Q magazine, Florence Welch said despite her own natural conflicted and irreverent mindset, she attempted to put some positive messages on Ceremonials, "because I knew there would be kids listening." She continued: "Like putting something in there that wasn't just for me, like 'Heartlines' and 'Spectrum,' they're really earnest, saying don't be afraid of who you are and follow your heart. I get scared of being earnest. Like a lot of British people, I prefer sarcasm and irreverence. So those grand statements were hard for me. Wearing my heart on my sleeve. Very frightening."
