“Moderation” is not the first word that comes to mind when you think of Florence Welch’s booming, rafter-shaking vocals, but it’s what she’s singing about on a newly performed Florence + The Machine song.
The Welch-fronted band is currently touring Australia and New Zealand, and on a Saturday stop at Perth’s RAC Arena, they debuted a never-before-heard song — possibly titled “Moderation,” if the repeated word is any indication. Florence + The Machine released their last album, High Hopes, in 2018, but with loads of tour dates lined up this year — including a headlining slot at New York’s Governors Ball — the band might want some new music to play in the coming months.
The song obviously showcases Welch’s aforementioned vocal prowess, with lyrics like “I never made it with moderation/ No, I never understood/ My feeling was all or nothing/ I took everything I could,” as the NME reports.
