Well, this just about seals the deal for my preemptive knighting of Florence and the Machine as the Best Act of 2009. Honestly, can she do any wrong?
This time around, the singer channels the lovely Satine from Moulin Rouge, the camp of the great Kylie Minogue, and the fiery temptress present throughout the Lungs campaign to combat “You’ve Got the Love,” the latest single off of Welch’s masterful debut. Trust me…there will be glitter.
It’s whimsical, charming and simple; the perfect companion to this sweetly sung cover. I love this woman!
