Florence and The Machine – What The Water Gave Me (Universal, 2011- Single)

WATER GAVE HER POWER

“What the water gave me” is the first single from Florence and The Machine’s upcoming album. Once again, Florence Welch teamed up with producer Paul Epworth (Adele, Kate Nash, Cee Lo Green, Friendly Fires…) and their new product didn’t fail us. From their first album we’ve learned about Florence’s strong attitude towards feminism, in the terms of independent and strong women. That also seems to be the case with the new song. The title comes from Frida Kahlo’s painting and the theme is inspired by Virginia Woolf‘s suicide by drowning.

Lyrics seem very mythical and spiritual, and with Welch’s specific vocals, they remind me of Kate Bush. Music starts very soft and tender, with organ and guitar setting the calm tone, but also adding to its depth. Once the drums kick in, backed up with the lightly distorted guitar riff, composition gains the power. Vocals are overdubbed so they create the illusion of choir music.

Compared to the songs from “Lungs” this one seems more layered and deeper. Vocals are better trained, and they really stick out (in the positive way). Orchestration is very rich and if the whole album turns out to be like this song, we will have ourselves a masterpiece. We’ll just have to wait for November the 7th and see.

MOĆNA FLORENS

„What the water gave me“ je prvi singl sa predstojećeg albuma Florence and The Machine. Florens Velč je ponovo udružila snage sa producentom Polom Epvortom (Adel, Kejt Neš, Si lo Grin, Friendly Fires…) i njihov novi proizvod nas nije izneverio. Sa njihovog prvog albuma smo saznali o Florensinim snažnim feminističkim stavovima u smislu jake i nezavisne žene. Kako se čini, to je slučaj i na novoj pesmi. Naslov je preuzet od slike Fride Kalo, a tematika je inspirisana samoubistvom Virdžinije Vulf koja se utopila u reci.

Stihovi se čine mitskim i duhovnim, i sa Velčovim specifičnim vokalima, podsećaju me na Kejt Buš. Muzika počinje lagano i nežno, sa ogruljama i gitarom koje diktiraju miran ton, ali i produbljuju pesmu. Kada se uključe bubnjevi, podržani blago distorziranim gitarskim rifom, numera dobija na snazi (moći). Preklapanje identičnih glasova, korišćenjem overdub tehnike, stvara iluziju horskog pevanja.

U poređenju sa pesmama sa albuma „Lungs“, nova kompozicija se čini dubljom i slojevitijom. Vokali su konkretniji, usmereniji i ističu se. Orkestracija je veoma bogata i ako ceo album ispadne u ovom stilu, očekuje nas remek-delo. Ostaje nam samo da sačekamo 7. novembar.
