i was waiting to be struck by lightning, waiting for somebody exciting like you

i'm not exactly sure why i've been out of the loop for so long. (fellow indie music loving friends, i partially blame you.) i've heard of camera obscura for years but it never occurred to me that i should actually give them a good listen. thankfully, as of last saturday, i have been enlightened.

i finally (i guess you could say) discovered this band thanks to a facebook status from a middle school friend. her status had the lyrics to "let's get out of this country." i really liked the lyrics so i did a little google search and, voila! i found my new favorite band. i immediately downloaded their last two albums and have been playing them non stop.

my favorite song, by far, is "french navy." part of the reason i love this song so much is because of the video.

how much do you want to be the girl (or guy, i guess, depending on your sex) in this video?? i want her belted floral dress. i want to run around paris or rome with a bearded dude wearing a turtle neck and a corduroy blazer. i want to train hop from city to gorgeous city at a moment's notice. that's like my dream. for real.

so until that actually happens, i guess i'll just keep listening to some camera obscura, dancing around my room and wishing i would have discovered this band A LOT sooner.
