Free Before 9pm, £4 Thereafter
From Radiohead and Elbow, to Wilco and Woody Guthrie, Camera take influences from all genres of music and carve out a sound that is as powerful and epic as it is intimate and heartfelt.
From being courted by major record labels in UK and signing to ultra-hip independent label My Kung Fu for the release of their debut album, to playing in front of 60,000 people at the Cardiff Millennium Stadium for the 2005 Tsunami Relief benefit concert, Camera are a band that have consistently built on a solid foundation of classic songwriting and finely tuned yet understated musicianship.
After touring in support of their first album, the 2006 My Kung Fu release ‘Ashes and Dim Light’ for just over two years, 2008 saw the band take a break and start work on new material. releasing the critically acclaimed ‘The Fireflies EP’ (www.thefirefliesep.com) as a free download.
The release of the EP saw the band go out and play a handful of gigs including the NME radar tour with Darwin Deez and Hurts. Drum With Our Hands will be releasing Camera’s second album ‘For When You Wake’ in October this year. The first single from the album, entitled ‘Happiness’, is out now on download.
It’s been a wonderful Summer so far, and now the band are pleased to announce more shows for the rest of the year.
