1. Florence + the Machine, 'No Light, No Light'

In another context, this "No Light, No Light" could be the sound of a religious revival. Florence Welch's rich voice has never sounded better than on this track; her fervent, even rapturous, lamentations about her partner's lost love resonate like requests for salvation made by a faltering believer with arms raised to the sky. "Heaven help me, I need to make it right" she wails, but gets no reply. Replete with harps and a tribal drum beat, "No Light, No Light" operates as a plea for salvation that will soon have you running to your deity of choice.
