Florence and The Machine ‘s How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful
The music video for Florence and the Machine’s latest single ‘How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful’, directed by Tabitha Denholm and Vincent Haycock, feels like poetic telling of a solemn relationship between humanity, nature, and human nature.
The almost unearthly, enchanted instrumental composition, made up of perfect doses of crescendos and diminuendos, powerful piano and triumphant horns.
The video begins with a widescreen view of a beautiful landscape of the sky with massive beautiful green trees mischievously protruding into the frame. The camera descends into an aerial view of an open space in Mexico, where human creation and forest perfectly complement one another. The camera cuts to a close up of Florence and the climax begins.
“How big, how blue, how beautiful,” sings Florence, her voice beautifully piercing through the instrumental ever so harmoniously. She repeats the phrase while performing a dramatic and intimate modern dance routine with what looks like her human clone. The dance is choreographed by Ryan Heffington, the same choreographer behind Sia‘s “Chandelier” video.
Beautiful song, magnificent visuals, leave us itching for the third LP.
