    Ok, so I love Florence, but she's taken over my MP3 at the moment and I'd really like to listen to some other stuff, before I end up overplaying Florence and putting myself off (as if that could happen! :/)

    If any Florence fans could tell me what other music they like that would be fantastic.

    If it's any help my favourite F&TM songs are "Drumming Song" and "Cosmic Love." Other bands I like are Muse, Paramore, Nerina Pallot...

    Thanks so much in advance for your recommendations!

    Bat For Lashes. She has a similar dreamy sound - especially the tracks 'Horse and I' and 'Glass'.

    What is it you like about her, the lyrics or the melodies?

    If you're interested in the lyrical side, I'd suggest Bob Dylan or Elliott Smith.

    You could always listen to some Candi Staton- she sang You got the love.

    Just some ideas.

    La Roux, Tilly and the Wall, Tegan and Sara, Laura Marling, Regina Spektor are the ones that sprang to mind.

    Their version of "You Got The Love" was pretty decent too.

    I second Ellie Goulding - look for Starry Eyed/Under the Sheets. Little Boots, Air Traffic, Kate Nash, KT Tunstall, and Lacuna Coil might be good too.

    I LOVE Florence + The Machine! Not sure if you would like any of these but I also listen to... Ladyhawke, Brand New, Kids In Glass Houses, Chairlift, Biffy Clyro, Maria + The Diamonds, Muse, Ellie Goulding, Tilly + The Wall, Regina Spektor, Paolo Nutini, Kaiser Chiefs, The Maccabees, Placebo, Jamie T, The Big Pink, Black Kids, Cajun Dance Party, Esser, Crystal Castles, Franz Ferdinand..... I think that's enough..
