Florence and the Machine record dance music

British rockers Florence and the Machine have recorded secret dance tracks under an alias.
The ‘You've Got the Love’ hitmakers are known for their moody indie music, but singer Florence Welch reveals she and her bandmates have been working on up-tempo dance songs on the side.
She tells news website DigitalSpy.co.uk, "We actually have a dance outfit side project called Side Project. We made this weird house track that sounded quite churchy... As yet it has never seen the light of day."
The frontwoman also admits she is a big fan of electropop DJ Calvin Harris, who has remixed the group's latest single Spectrum.
She adds, "What I enjoy about Calvin's songs is that he has that blend of euphoric and melancholic which as an artist he has managed to perfect.
"It's that mix of catchy and sad - that feeling of complete joy but something tugging at your insides. That's what makes a great pop song and I really think he's coined that."
