Florence and the Machine
"Breath of Life"
Inspired by Charlize Theron's evil-queen character in the new Snow White movie, this song from the film's soundtrack is Flo at her most toweringly gothed-out. All doom-drum rush and endless-midnight orchestral sweep, it sounds like it was produced by Sauron the Dark Lord of Mordor – but in a good way. The wintry tumult sets the stage for a display of primal vocal acrobatics and white-knuckled emoting. Flo goes looking for "a little touch of heavenly light/But all the choirs in my head say 'no.'" And they sure say it loud. Someone get that girl an Advil.
