Florence and The Machine’s “Kiss With a Fist” is a fun, sexy romp of tough love, and by tough love I mean a knock down, drag out, broken bones and blood, mixed martial arts kind of love. As if there’s any doubt of this gal’s spunk, it’s erased when you hear the chorus, “A kick in the teeth is good for some/A kiss with a fist is better than none. Fittingly, the video for “Kiss With a Fist,” shot primarily in a white room, showcases her playful, sexy, and sometimes vicious sides, as she shakes, shimmies, and smashes plates on some poor schlep. I think I’m in love.
The “Kiss With a Fist” single will be out June 9th on Moshi Moshi in the UK and the following day, June 10th on I Am Sound Records in the States.
