Alex Cameron is probably best known as one of the members of Sydney-based electronic/a idm trio Seekae, who have released the acclaimed albums “The Sounds of Trees Falling on People” and “+Dome” on Rice is Nice within the last 6 years.
Camerons debut solo LP “Jumping The Shark”, released in November 2013, is remarkably different from past ventures. The album is a collection of tales about sadness and inevitable failure, a complex collection of short stories documenting the bankrupt and morally vacant world of contemporary showbiz – and they’re voiced by a forgotten variety show host, Ken DuPont (Cameron).
Cameron’s solo work is dark and deadpan, stylistically a little bit Bowie and a little bit Byrne, with the bleak suburban musings of Jarvis Cocker and with a Bryan Ferry-/ Nick Cave-ish vibe in his singing.
We are looking forward to his performance supported by DJ Falko Teichmann at Acud on May 2nd.
