Artist: Florence + The Machine
Song: No Light, No Light
This artist was not on my list of musicians I wanted to see at this year’s Lollapalooza, but I felt the need to feature it anyway. Partly because I’m sure a lot of people are excited to see Florence + The Machine, and for good reason. I was never a fan of her hit single, “Dog Days Are Over“, and frankly didn’t get what all the hype was about. But ever so slowly, I became somewhat interested in her music. This changed when I heard “Shake It Out” on the radio constantly and didn’t think it was half bad. Then, this song I’m featuring here, “No Light, No Light” came on the radio one day…. holy fuck… I was so wrong about her.
This song is great. It’s beautifully haunting in every sense. The backing choir, her dominant vocals, and dramatic melodies, all made me a believer in Florence Welch. Talent like this, with a voice so commanding and powerful, is definitely something great to come by.
I’m always secretly happy when artists can prove me wrong and crank out some amazing music.
