Fearless fantasist Florence Welch is a one woman whirlwind, drum banging banshee from Camberwell who isn't "scared of anything". She has won the Brit Awards' Critics' Choice prize for the new act most likely to be big in 2009.
Watch: Florence performs Dog Days Are Over live for BBC Introducing
Playing table football with Klaxons in a rusting aeroplane cockpit at midday in the depths of Glastonbury's Shangri La hinterland, Florence Welch, aka Florence And The Machine, is lost in her own world.
That was last summer but it's not an entirely unusual position for the Londoner.
She does, by her own acknowledgement, spend most of her time engrossed in her own psychological warren.
Indeed, anyone who's already heard the 22-year-old's debut single Kiss With A Fist and follow up Dog Days Are Over will know she lives her life, like she writes her songs.
That's in a dreamy vortex caught somewhere between the characters of Enid Blyton and Lewis Carroll.
"I can imagine myself walking into the song and becoming part of it, seeing what's happening in it," she explains. "You can close your eyes and step into it and become part of it - part of the fun."
Welcome to Florence's existence, where she'll lose whole weekends seeking "adventures".
"I woke up in a graveyard covered in scratches because I'd jumped over a bush," she recalls of one recent escapade. "I was just covered in scratches, bruises and cigarette burns. It was really terrible."
