Here's what I think happens in Calvin Harris' new Florence Welch-assisted video, "Sweet Nothing": Welch plays a stripper who can't find a way out of her abusive relationship. Harris saves the day by paying a London street gang to beat the sh-t out of her boyfriend. The whole ordeal unfolds on the gritty streets of Dalston, England as Florence gives an explosive performance on the strip club stage (!!!), eventually ripping off her Robert Palmer-esque suit and writhing on the floor in her bra.
Director Vincent Haycock (Spiritualized, Miike Snow) showcases a much edgier side of the "Breath of Life" singer, and we have to say we're digging it. But we could be biased—Calvin Harris has the Midas touch when it comes to EDM-infused pop jams. His album, 18 Months (due out October 29), is sure to be non-stop bangers.
Check out the "Sweet Nothings" video above, and let us know what you think about Florence's stripping skills.
