“Shake It Out” (Live At Radio 1’s Hackney Weekend) (Video)

    Jay-Z may have stolen the show at the Hackney Weekend in London, but there were a number of other notable performances trailing in his wake. Among them were Florence + the Machine, who attracted a huge crowd judging from the clip below. Here we get to see a performance of the first single from Ceremonials, “Shake It Out,” which demonstrates how Florence’s powerful voice can fill such vast open spaces. It’s easy to imagine her as a gruff Sergeant Major in another life—if she’d asked this crowd to stand to attention, most of them would probably have done it. [via AHIAS]
