MUSIC: New Florence + The Machine, Light Asylum, Woodkid And More

As if you couldn’t tell just by looking, photographer David LaChappelle is one of the co-directors (along with John Byrne) of Florence + The Machine’s latest video. The clip for “Spectrum”—the new single from Florence Welch’s sophomore album, Ceremonials—marries Welch’s oddball, melodramatic pop sensibilities to LaChappelle’s colorfully camp vision. Scenes of ballerinas in snowy white tutus straight out of Swan Lake are intercut with luridly bright tableaus that have LaChappelle’s fingerprints all over them. Pair all that with a galloping beat and Welch’s spirit-quaking wail and you’ve got one hell of a video.
