Somehow this remix of Florence & the Machine's Elizabethan epic "Rabbit Heart" transforms sparse drums and organ cluster into a dance track semi-reminiscent of old Fatboy Slim (the good Fatboy Slim) and trip-hop (making a comeback?), but not depressive, bleak or moody at all—it couldn't be anyway with the crystal rainbows of piano burbling out at the end. And when you think about it, the chorus of "raise it up" is perfect for dancefloor self-motivation, like Florence is your life coach. Best case scenario, she is a life coach that also lets you borrow her outfits.
