Florence and the Machine

I first heard "Dog Days Are Over" by Florence and the Machine while watching the third season of Skins on Youtube a few months ago. (The 3rd season should air here in the States on BBC America this summer, if anyone's interested...but don't expect it to be at the same level as the first two seasons.) Then I started noticing mentions of Florence and the Machine everywhere. The band, fronted by Florence Welch, has released just two limited singles to critical acclaim in the UK and US, but their debut album, Lungs, will be released July 6.

If you have a fear of carnies/clowns/having glitter thrown in your face, I wouldn't suggest watching the video for this song.
