Florence + The Machine “Spectrum”

Say My Name

Here we are again. You know I just can’t help myself when it comes to our favorite redheaded songbird. This time, Florence is back with another visual adventure – defining the next hit-single off of Ceremonials. We’ve come to expect the usual imaginative, out of the box musical spectacular when it comes to Florence’s styled music videos, and I can assure you, this time is no different. Spectrum begins with ease; Florence’s stunning look intensified by sharp cuts to her electric auburn hair. Fiery color. Sharp reflections of light. As the song gains momentum, our songstress is encircled by an assembly of ballet dancers swaying to the song’s fierce sounds. Florence’s moves are grandiose, larger than life. She is a disco queen. She rises from the cool blue water like a sea goddess. She even has her own Mini Me! The visual accompaniment to the signature dance-track is complete with a rainbow of bright tones, theatrical choreography, and the slightest bit of the risqué. The final scene brings Florence to her knees, crawling toward us, closing the sensational power-anthem. I always seem to find myself wondering what it is I exactly watched after each of these unique performances from Flo, but by the end, I can’t help but be wonder-struck by the originality of the piece. You will love Spectrum for the song, obviously, but will be enchanted by the video’s fun, quirky nature. Take a look, my friends; observe the Flo in her natural habitat. Tell me what you think.

    This is such a gorgeous video! However, it seems to have very little with the actual meaning of the song. Still, the originality and – as you say – quirkiness of Flo’s performances never fail to impress me! The mini-me idea is brilliant 😀

    1. Exactly! She’s so unique and always shows that with her music videos. The Mini Me was awesome and slightly hilarious. I totally did not see that coming. Lol. Yeah, I agree. Though you always have to dig a little deeper to catch those pesky metaphors with Flo’s videos.

    1. Thanks, Peggy!

      I agree, I think this has to be one of my favorite Florence videos. I don’t know why. I just love her expressions and movements. She’s fascinating to watch . . . and listen to. 🙂
