There are rumours circulating that Swedish pop supremo Robyn‘s record label wanted her age to be kept out of interviews or at least played down, simply because she’s over…wait for it…30 years of age! Given this nugget of information, it must have been hard for Robyn to film this video for the mind-meltingly good ‘Dancing On My Own’, seeing as much of it takes place in a club with loads of young people getting off with each other and being all young and gross.
Whatever her age, the woman knows how to wring every drop of emotion out of a song, doesn’t she? Those violent gestures, that anguished face, the smoke machines! Watch it here:
Everyone’s current favourite British female songstress Florence & The Machine, is set to release her twentieth single. ‘Cosmic Love’ was always the song on the album that screamed “THIRD SINGLE”, and despite the delay, it’s still a genuinely beautiful love song. The video continues the visual theme of most of the videos from Lungs, i.e. Florence leaps about with gleeful abandon, flinging her hair around like a banshee and generally being spooky and ethereal. All of this is a good thing in a video by the way.
