Little Green Cars – ‘My Love Took Me Down To The River To Silence Me’

A Florence impression so bad it sounds like she’s trying to swallow her own voice

If you look at this song title and imagine a Nick Cave-and-PJ Harvey-licking-each-others’-legs-style murder ballad, come join me on the dejected bench of disappointment. If, on the other hand, you think of a folk-stompy Irish feint at Arcade Fire fronted by a Florence impression so bad it sounds like she’s trying to swallow her own voice, step right this way.
