Florence & The Machine – Shake It Out

How about some new Florence Welch dancing around amongst costume, glitter balls and 1920’s style scandal. It is one of the most stylised videos I’ve seen in a while and is heavily dependent on dirty glass, poor colouring and multiple lens flares in the cinematography to create the atmosphere for a scandalous party of the rich and shameless. I am a fan of the song, although it is nothing new to expect from the mistress of indie/hipster pop. The video is rather attractive set against a backdrop of the art deco decadence of ElthamPalace giving it all the necessary dimensions for general coolness. Another good show from Florence & The Machine and director Dawn Shadforth, whom directed Drumming Song also.
