Florence + The Machine have just released the music video for Breaking Down, another one of the tracks from their best selling Ceremonials album.
The song is an affectionate reflection of times spent in Los Angeles during a summer vacation. The likable song is mainly all about loneliness and the associated fears, but the song's beat and very catchy melody is something really attractive about the track.
The music video was filmed in a Super 8 film format, thus making the clip look like it's an old archive. Viewers won't be fooled, however, as they watch Florence in the film at the age she is at the moment. Everyone knows her too well!
The video features the lead singer initially sunbaking in a pool before she gives in to her desires to paddle around in the water. It was filmed on a gorgeous sunny day, further promoting the feeling of happiness. Florence frolics around in the water for a bit, and finishes up on a sun-lounge. Amid all the happy scenes, the US flag is shown. Quite conveniently, this video was released in time for 4th July, a proud day for any American.
Further scenes show the band dancing, playing tennis, and driving in the car. Various people are shown being happy living their lives in a country where the roads are lined with palm trees and the buildings adorned with neon signs. Towards the end, some of the footage shows sights of Las Vegas at night - again all about having a bit of fun.
The video, made while the group were on their Ceremonials tour in the US, has a really nostalgic feel about it.
