This week’s track is You’ve Got The Love (The XX remix) by Florence + The Machine. Mysterious and sonically stylish, The XX were the ambassadors of the very first edition of week&groove and they definitely don’t need any further introduction. Florence is the hip artist of the moment, she writes her best songs when she’s drunk or has a hangover. Flo’s soaring, epic vocals, quirky melodies and self-contained musical world have already won her the 2009 Critics Choice Award at the Brits. Some compare her to Kate Bush. You’ll also find touches of Tom Waits and Nick Cave in her dark visions, and if you heard a little of Bjork too, she’d find it a compliment. If you thought for a second that maybe this track wasn’t going to adhere itself to your heart, then you haven’t heard it twice.
