Camera Obscura - Lloyd, I'm Ready To Be Heartbroken
Camera Obscura are an indie pop band from Glasgow, Scotland. This track is from their third album, Let's Get Out of this Country. I love the juxtaposition of bright, sparkly melody with really sad lyrics. The video translates that same vibe just perfectly as well. I think this YouTube comment I found from iamjackscolin under the video sums it up absolutely perfectly.
possibly the happiest sad-song I've ever heard
I alternate between wanting to run top speed through the streets of New York, and wanting to curl up on the floor of my closet and cry myself to sleep.
