Florence + The Machine Channels Lana Del Rey In “Breaking Down” Video

We won’t blame you if you mistook Florence + The Machine‘s “Breaking Down” video as the newest clip from Lana Del Rey, since the vid for her Ceremonials track basically follows the standard LDR format to a T. “Breaking Down” is filmed in shaky, Instagram-y handhald video, with Welch wearing her cutest vintage hipster duds as she lounges around. And just like Del Rey’s “National Anthem” visuals, the video’s premiere is well-timed for the Fourth Of July, as the Flo crew (including Katy Perry‘s current beau, Robert Ackroyd) celebrates America by traveling through it, hitting sunny locales like Las Vegas, Los Angeles and New Orleans. It’s like watching your grandparents’ old super 8 home movies off a projector, but with a better soundtrack.
