Can you think of a more perfect match than the epic, cinematic, melodramatic music of Florence & the Machine and the sure-to-be-epic drama of the upcoming “Snow White and the Huntsman”? Flo’s track for the movie, “Breath of Life,” dropped on April 26 and it is appropriately spectacular.
The foot-stomping beat would make it perfect for soundtracking a battle scene, and combined with Florence’s haunting vocals gives off just the right vibe set by the chilling “Huntsman” trailer. The choral breakdown two thirds of the way through is especially epic.
Yes, it does sound very much like plenty other Florence & the Machine songs, but as far as we’re concerned, that is not a bad thing at all. Kristen Stewart, Charlize Theron and Chris Hemsworth star in the movie, which hits theaters on June 1. The soundtrack will hit stores on May 29.
