Florence and the Machine deserve better videos (like the kind Lykke Li gets)

I love Florence and the Machine. The have a new video out, and while it is a great song, it’s a not so great video (to say the least). Maybe if I was 14, I would think it was really smart, but that type of montage was old 20 years ago, and it seems even older now. If you want to see it, it’s here: Florence + The Machine – Shake It Out.It’s a shame, because as you can see from this live performance, the only thing you need to do is put them on stage and they are great. No overwrought videos necessary. Here they are performing what already seems like a classic: You’ve Got The Love (LIVE from Bonnaroo, 2011).

Maybe Florence and the Machine should find out who Lykke Li gets to do her videos. Like them or hate them, hers are never boring or stale:

Lykke Li – Little Bit – YouTube (much better sans Drake).
