Florence + the Machine Go Choir-Boy Crowdsurfing in ‘No Light, No Light’ Video
Florence + the Machine have released their new video for ‘No Light, No Light’ in which singer Florence Welch is shown jumping off a skyscraper and through the stained glass window of a church.
Throughout the clip, we see different shots of the frontwoman, singing from the top of a building. Her actions aren’t her own, though — she’s being controlled by a man holding a voodoo doll. Welch plummets through the glass, but is thankfully caught by a group of choir boys, who continue to hold her up above the ground, making for one epic crowdsurfing moment.
Last month, Welch revealed that ‘No Light, No Light’ would be the group’s next single. “… The intro was written on my tour bus at four in the morning going to Amsterdam,” she said of how the song came to be. “We had gone out for [Machine member] Rob [Ackroyd]‘s birthday to an all-night restaurant in Brussels called Midnights. We went to this funny restaurant and then got on the tour bus and everyone was a bit drunk and it was like, ‘Yeah, let’s write a song.’”
‘No Light, No Light’ is the second official track from the band’s new album, ‘Ceremonials’, which was released in October. It follows the song ‘Shake It Out’ and the LP’s lead single, ‘What The Water Gave Me.’
