New Camera Obscura video premiered today
14th August 2013

The first visuals from Camera Obscura's latest album Desire Lines have appeared online today. The video for single 'Break It To You Gently' was directed by Joseph Mann and shot on location in London with an unusual cast of characters. 

Intrigued by the use of stop motion in music videos, Camera Obscura brought Mann on board, whose repertoire draws heavily from that field. Bassist Gavin Dunbar says, "we were keen to have a video that was a little different to what we would normally do, so we basically gave him free reign to do what he wanted."
