Florence and the Machine Explain Name, Perform 'Dog Days Are Over' on 'GMA' (VIDEO)

You've probably heard the music of Florence and the Machine, but Friday on 'Good Morning America' (weekdays, 7AM on ABC), Florence Welch explained the origin of the band's name, and introduced the machine herself, before they performed their hit song 'Dog Days Are Over' on GMA's Summer Concert Series.
"It's funny because it kind of started as a private joke between me and Isabella, over here," said Welch, motioning toward her keyboard player, Isabella Summers. "This is Isa Machine, the original Isa Machine. And I was Florence Robot. So the first name for the band was actually Florence Robot/Isa Machine, but that's really long."
The band then kicked into their most recognized single, 'Dog Days Are Over,' which some may recognize from its use on the TV shows 'Glee,' 'Gossip Girl,' 'Community,' and 'Covert Affairs.'
