Florence + The Machine have released the video for one of my favourite tracks off of the Ceremonials album, Spectrum.
Keen to mirror the opulence and luscious feel of the track itself, Florence + The Machine enlisted world renowned photographer David LaChapelle to direct the clip.
There are some gorgeous set pieces to be found in the video for Spectrum, for instance the flooded cityscape, and the golden-hued apartment, but it feels like they either ran out of time, or money to really use them to their best advantage. The choreography looked particularly loose. But I suppose that will happen when you're trying to squash in a video shoot while on a world tour.
It's still a gorgeous video, and one that will bear even more fruit for those who understand/appreciate interpretive dance- because there's plenty of it to be found here! Unfortunately, that isn't one of my areas of expertise, so my views remain somewhat superficial.
Speaking of my lack of cultural refinement, did anyone else pick up on the odd placement of the lighting in the first scene...
Spectrum is available to buy on July 8.
