(in)camera - (in)camera
There’s no better accompaniment to the approaching spring than the ethereal landscapes crafted masterfully by (in)camera. From the very onset of opener “Juniper,” flowery blips pop about summery melodies like delicate fireworks carefully interrupting silent fields of stars. The symbols crash around otherworldly guitar riffs, as if the sparks and twinkles raining down from expired supernovas. All of this warm imagery is wrapped cozily around the strongly recherché vocals of Shelagh Larkin and Susan Smith. This, the self-titled EP debut of Cincinnati’s gloriously indie outfit (in)camera, rounds out 20 minutes with 4 songs. Like any good EP, the closing crashing feedback of “Green Motel” leaves your ears ringing and your moth salivating. Every song on this release is blisteringly warm, strong, and deep—as in a bottomless ocean sort of deep. “Inbetween” practically drowns the listener in a lake of sonic reverberations, teasing with smooth seas before inciting tidal waves of choruses. There are layers upon layers of sound within these tracks, and – much like Sonic Youth, Stereolab, and even My Bloody Valentine – your ears will require a few listens to swim through the waves of sound generated by (in)camera. The young-yet-veteran musicians of (in)camera prove already to be worthy of praise and to them I say: Please give us more!
