The Australian musician Alex Cameron paints quick, affecting character sketches of losers and creeps, bolstered by elementary synth programming and Cameron’s confident, warm baritone.
Jumping the Shark his highly acclaimed LP released from May this year makes the most of its short running time selling you on the idea that Cameron’s “I’ve been cut so I knows how to bleed” tales carry the charm and gravitas of authenticity; the fact that he is making it harder to see the difference between himself and his characters only cements this impression.
More importantly, the melding of these stories with Cameron’s efficient, minimal compositions create the type of songs that penetrate deep and linger in your consciousness long after you’ve stopped listening to them.
80’s inspired eerie electronic tales from the dark side. In a word… Encaptivating!
