#TOTD of February 7th: Addicted to Love by Florence and the Machine

For fans of: Lily Allen, Tegan and Sarah, The xx

We haven’t really heard much from Florence and the Machine since they released the single “Over the Love” for The Great Gatsby last summer. But “Addicted to Love” fits oh so perfectly into the love song vibe that’s going on this month, so I had to make it todays TOTD.

In the past, Florence Welch has said, ““I try to write lyrics so that they won’t age, which sort of leaves you with the big subjects — like death and love and sex and violence.” The concept of being addicted, infatuated, or even in love with love has been displayed in art, music, literature, films and all other types of self-expression for years and years, and I think it will always be that way. So, Florence has the right idea by trying to capture the nuances of those timeless topics.
