While Madonna was getting headlines for kissing Drake, Florence Welch also performed at Coachella over the weekend, as well as releasing a new video for her track Ship to Wreck.

The video shows the English singer-songwriter in a messy flat getting physical and emotional with another version of herself. "I was thinking about my own self-destructive side, and how you can make something only to tear it down," Florence said in a statement. "When you're in that whirlwind, you often end up breaking the thing you love the most."

According to Rolling Stone, the Vincent Haycock-directed music video is a continuation of the duality themes that Florence is interested in, and which can also be seen in How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful. Watch the captivating video above.
