New Video – Florence + The Machine: “No Light, No Light” – Racist or No?

November 23, 2011 § Leave a comment

Florence + The Machine released the video for their 3rd single “No Light, No Light” from their sophomore album Ceremonials. I wasn’t a fan of the track upon first listen, but the video has stunning visuals of the classic “Good vs. Evil” theme that help to elevate the song.

But with its references to Voodoo and Blackface, many have stated that the video is rather a take on race: Black vs. White.

Check it out for yourself & see what you think:
