Florence and the Machine debut new sound with latest track ‘Moderation’

Florence + The Machine has rolled out what appears to be a change in direction on their new song ‘Moderation’.

Playing live during a sold out show at Perth’s RAC Arena on the first night of their Australian tour, the band’s lead singer Florence Welch decided not to introduce the song but is has since been titled as ‘Moderation’ by setlist. Some speculation that the song was printed as “MD?” on the official setlist.

Beginning the song alongside a strong drum beat, Welch sings “I never made it with moderation/No, I never understood/My feeling was all or nothing/I took everything I could” before the song turns to heavy guitars.

In what would signal a new sound for the band, Welch decided to jump from the stage and sing the remained of the anthem in the 15,000-strong crowd.

Here’s the song:
