Florence + The Machine | No Light, No Light

Posted on December 30, 2011


No Light, No Light
Artist: Florence + The Machine
Album: Ceremonials (2011)
Rating: 6.3/10.0

The second official single and third song to receive a video off Florence + The Machine’s sophomore effort, “No Light, No Light” maintains Florence Welch’s nearly redundant big sound. Despite more intimate lyrics (“Through the crowd, I was crying out / And in your place there were a thousand other faces”), “No Light, No Light” fails to provide a large enough shift away from the grandiosity found in Florence’s previous releases to invoke much excitement. But Florence doing what Florence does best is far from awful. “No Light, No Light” might not reveal any new sides of Florence but settling for what she’s shown us so far is at the very least satisfying.
