Florence + the Machine’s ‘No Light, No Light’ Remixed by TV On the Radio’s Davie Sitek
The 'Ceremonials' version of 'No Light, No Light' is a lush, epic anthem, but Sitek's remix is more haunting, with spacey instrumentation and repetitive percussive clicks. The remix doesn't change much in terms of the song structure itself, keeping all the verses and the up-tempo sections that give the track its energy.
Florence Welsh's vocals still command the attention when she sings, "Would you leave me if I told you what I've done / And would you leave me if I told you what I've become / Cause it's so easy to sing it to a crowd / But it's so hard, my love, to say it to you alone."
Sitek's version feels more gritty, but it doesn't necessarily improve upon the power of the original. 'No Light, No Light' is expected to be the second single from 'Ceremonials,' following 'Shake it Out.'
