The new video for British outfit Florence & The Machine has a slight Australian flavour to it! Yes, local actor Ben Mendelsohn makes an appearance in the new clip, playing Flo’s love interest, though it appears there’s little love left between the pair, as Florence makes a break for freedom, heading out into the foggiest of nights in search of a new life.
Through the tale that’s told, we find that Ben’s character is a bit duplicitous – happy at once, then altogether menacing and monstrous. Florence has no choice but to break the cycle – and creates a little bonfire for herself. Then it’s off to the sea for a cold, icy dip. Let’s just hope she’s between the flags.
