Calvin & The Machine Whisper Sweet Nothings ...

Posted on the 29 August 2012 by Tlb Music Blog @TLB_Blog

Florence Welch & Calvin Harris unveiled their collaboration, Sweet Nothing, yesterday and have since been accepting many praises from fans and pundits alike. However, it does seem that some have not taken to this, essentially dance, track lightly and feel that Florence has fallen off the Indie radar.
 The very first note is something that Florence & The Machine may have worked on, but this track quickly enters the world of Calvin Harris and has a dance-y beat quickly placed throughout. Florence delivers an impeccable vocal on top of this and it is something that you can't help but enjoy somewhat.
If you were in a club, you'd happily dance along to this sort of track regardless of which clique you're accustomed to. If you're someone who is often in clubs and listening to constant dance music, this would be up your street, but likewise, if you're used to the woeful wonders of Florence + The Machine, you'll enjoy the fact that Florence herself offers something as incredible as her previous work.
I can see, however, why people wouldn't enjoy this. There's not one particular moment within the whole track that you stand/dance in awe at a note Florence has managed to peak at (like in No Light No Light), also, there is a constant feeling, though this is a bit of a contradiction to my own words, that this was made solely to cater for both audiences and rake in cash.
I do like this track. I think it'll do particularly well. But I do understand both sides of the argument and feel that only time will give us the answer as to whether or not this has gone too far in genre cross-overs. What do you think?
