[video] Camera Obscura - "French Navy"


2006’s Let’s Get Out Of This Country kicked off with one of that year’s best singles - “Lloyd, I’m Ready To Be Heartbroken”. The upcoming My Maudlin Career, Camera Obscura’s 4AD follow up, kicks off with another blast of 60’s-tinged, endlessly melodic indie-pop called “French Navy”. The video, which made its debut recently at Pitchfork, features band clips interspersed with lots of footage of an affectionate couple running around Europe kissing. The song is killer, and now it’s really nice to look at too. My Maudlin Career drops April 21 in the U.S.
