Eccentricity and Melancholy: Interview with Florence + The Machine

Two hours before the interview, a call comes in: you cannot drive up early, but is it best right now? Arriving at the Boutique Hotel, located right in the center of the Covent Garden district of London, which we got in a terrible hurry, we are told: Florence suddenly decided that she would have lunch after our conversation, so we decided to postpone the meeting.

Disputes over the new work of Muse “Drones” have already subsided. And now, a couple of months after the album’s release, we’ll take a look at it again, so to speak, having tried this material over time.

Since ancient times, when people were not busy erecting grandiose structures, hunting, reproducing or uploading photos on Instagram, they looked at the stars and asked eternal questions: who are we and where are we from? what is our purpose? what is the fate of mankind? Most of us manage to get rid of the damned existential doubts and thoughts about the meaning of everything for the time being or forever, but some people, like Matthew Bellamy, turn their paranoia and fears into a constant source of inspiration (and income).
