Camera Obscura - "Break It To You Gently" Video

Scottish indie-pop band Camera Obscura dropped a new album, Desire Lines, in June, and have now released a video for that album’s single “Break It To You Gently,” in which a runaway shopping trolley takes a rolling tour of (what I assume is) Glasgow. At one point, the carriage has a run-in with a dog on wheels — perhaps a reference to countrymen and old pals Belle & Sebastian? I hope so. As you might expect, the clip is cute as hell, absolutely befitting the sweet, melancholic track. Check it out.

Desire Lines is out now via 4AD.

  1. Um, Camera Obscura is from Glasgow.

    • Gahhh! Of course I meant Scottish not Swedish (as my later references to Glasgow and countrymen Belle & Sebastian might have suggested). I have amended the text to erase my error from historical record. Thanks for the heads up!

  2. Yep, that should be *Scottish* indie-pop band.

  3. Milk boy approves of this message.
