Green Light In My Eyes
When the announcement was made, that my beloved Florence + The Machine had fashioned a brand-new tune for Baz Luhrmann’s much-anticipated film adaptation of The Great Gatsby, the appropriate response had been to run around my home in a sporadic like fashion, screaming at the top of my lungs. When a swarm of new trailers for the film had been released, and we were graced with a short preview of the song, my one and only reply consisted of short incoherent babbles, mainly composed of words like, love and need, and now. As you can imagine, when a full-length preview for the track appeared only mere hours ago, my immediate response was to listen to the opulent anthem repeatedly, and to swiftly share it with all of you. You’re welcome. Over the Love is another Florence classic of grandiose perfection. With a luminous clarity to her voice, Florence melts seamlessly into Gatsby’s vogue world – the lyrics detailed with heavy influence from the original novel. Florence’s rare ability to speak directly to your soul allows this track to appear like the night sky, filled with fireworks and shimmering stars. The song surrounds you, holds you until you hear nothing but its echo in your mind. I’ll guarantee you’ll love it.
