The sixth installment in Florence + the Machine’s music video series for The Odyssey has been released. Park Pictures director Vincent Haycock wraps up the epic visual campaign with “Delilah,” a dramatic six-minute short chronicling Florence confronting her demons in a spooky motel in Los Angeles.
The Biblically-influenced video – yes, the title is a reference to the tale of Samson and Delilah – follows Florence as she makes her way through the various rooms of a strange motel. From cutting her lover’s hair a la Samson, to experiencing a bout of sleep paralysis as a goblin sits on her chest and contemplates strangling her, to coming face-to-face with a Florence clone, the artsy video is rife with raw emotion and elegant choreography.
The Odyssey is a series of films that covers six tracks in the album. The videos were released one-by-one throughout 2015, with “Delilah” serving as the finale.
