Releasing the ghouls of the past

Kimberly Dominguez, News Editor

Whether you are jubilant or downright depressed, the bells, tambourines, and sweet melody of “Shake It Out” by Florence and the Machine is the perfect tune to listen to. This uplifting lead single, off of Florence Welch’s latest album, Ceremonials, exemplifies the feeling of greatness after “shaking off” regrets and getting over the past as an astonishing feeling of enlightenment.  The lyrics of this song can be applied to many situations in life. Although this talented and young English singer was once underground, those who are familiar with her music consider this song and album to be nothing less that what they expected. The album Ceremonials is scheduled for release on Oct. 31.
