I’ve been an on again, off again fan of Camera Obscura for a little over a year now, but it looks like their new album Let’s Get Out Of This Country might finally push me over the edge into fanatic.
MP3: Camera Obscura – Lloyd Im Ready To Be Heartbroken
You know that feeling you get when it’s cold out, but you’re wrapped up in a good blanket? Granted, you might not but as warm as you would be on a spring day, but it feels amazing in contrast to the chill. Well, that’s how this song feels. The superb vocals and complimentary string section have propelled Camera Obscura far beyond the “Belle and Sebastian Jr” comments that plagued them early on. These kids are stepping out from the twee-pop shadow and into a beautiful world of their creation.
