As the nominee's for the MTV Video Music Awards were announced earlier in the week I was pleasantly surprised to see one of my favorite acts Florence + The Machine. Florence Welch, lead singer of this British made band showcases her talent on self-titled EP. Having been compared to such artists as Fiona Apple & Kate Nash [also of British stardom] Welch seemed to be very surprised by the nominations [Best Rock Video, Best Art Direction, Best Cinematography and, the big one, Video of the Year] going on to tell MTV she was "still in shock and had watched the awards on tv as a kid." Welch also said she couldn't wait to see none other than Drizzy on the VMA stage. Theres a couple of downloads after the jump so make sure you check them out!
