Synthesized chords creep in while the piano crescendos into a jazzy haven of syncopated rhythms. Florence + the Machine is known for harp-sprinkled power ballads driven by voluminous and resonant vocals. Usually more baroque than bebop, this remix by up-and-comer KLar showcases a different side of the robust sound of Florence + the Machine. You’ve Got the Love wrapped up the 2009 album Lungs. The original begins simply and builds into classic Florence style, pumping timeless, love-torn lyrics.
Time after time I think Oh Lord what’s the use?
Time after time I think it’s just no good
Sooner or later in life, the things you love you loose
But you got the love I need to see me through
You got the love
Sometimes I feel like throwing my hands up in the air
I know I can count on you
Sometimes I feel like saying Lord I just don’t care
But you’ve got the love I need to see me through”
The real KLar is Kirill Larionov from St. Petersburg, Russia; he remixes regularly with Plastique Fantastique which you may recognize from our Axwell & Dirty South post a few days ago. KLar comes through in the clutch midweek to deliver smoothly infused jazz boosted with an angelic depth of vocals. Catch a ray of sunshine and cruise to this.
