New Music to Look Forward to: Camera Obscura
Camera Obscura's work is not to be found in the mainstream in the United States quite yet. Be that as it may, they are a good indie pop group. They hail from Scottland and their sound is informed, solid, and quietly paced. What really sets them apart, however, is their penchant for literary lyrics.
Camera Obscura's new single "Tears for Affairs" will come out on the 27th of November and it has already received interesting reviews in Europe.
Previous work from the Scottish outfit to check out would be their 2006 project "Let's Get Out of This Country" and the 2004 "Underachievers Please Try Harder."
Their successful single, "Lloyd, I'm Ready to be Heartbroken," is a response to Lloyd Cole's song "Are You Ready to Be Heartbroken." An enhanced alternate video of this song will be featured in the upcoming "Tears for Affairs" single release.
