Video: Calvin Harris ft. Florence Welch

This powerhouse dance song was already reviewed by us here, but I think this video merits a review of its own. Florence Welch pulls off a mercurial role as both an androgynous club singer as the video begins, but then she strips and howls and hollers as the music progresses. The narrative, as far as I can piece together, deals with Florence in a fiery relationship with another man, while something, either romantic or otherwise, takes place between her and producer Calvin Harris.

It's violent, fast (after the first 55 seconds), and thoroughly entertaining as Calvin Harris watches mysteriously in murky depths of a seedy English club. But it really is flame-haired Florence who steals the show as a violent yet restrained figure, breaking free and furiously throwing clothes off onstage. The metamorphosis is startling, making it no wonder the singer is a darling of fashion designers the world over. It all builds to excellent peaks and troughs to accompany the music. Physical beatings, Florence Welch's brilliant live on stage performances and a film-noir-like Calvin Harris make this one of the best videos this year:
