Signing: Sydney band Cameras join Speak N Spell; new album due this year!
Currently underground putting the finishing touches to their debut long-player, the band will play dates in the USA before a national Australian tour to coincide with the release of the album later this year.
The Sydney-based group formed in 2008 after Eleanor Dunlop (vox/keys) and Fraser Harvey (vox/guitar/bass) discovered a mutual love for layering darker dirtier sounds with warmer delicate melodies. The music that they have gone on to create is both light and dark, loud and soft, raw and atmospheric, alternative indie rock with layers of haunting ethereal beauty and pent up aggression.
Cameras have attracted the attention of critics’ worldwide. The band were recently invited to tour Australia; opening for art rock legends Roxy Music on their national tour and have also made key appearances at last years Creative Sydney Festival at the Museum of Contemporary Art, as well as performances at the 2011 Big Day Out, Adelaide Fringe Festival, Southbound, One Movement, Peats Ridge and Playground Weekender Festivals.
