Bio

WA act Camarano have mesmerised fans with genre-bending sounds since their debut single "Ashes" in 2017. Having released their EP Shadow Calling in 2019, Camarano returned with their first new music this year with the release of "Holiday Inn" which was added to Spotify's Indie Arrivals playlist. The band now release "Give It To Me Straight", the punchy second single from their forthcoming album due in early 2021.

Songwriter-producer Mat Cammarano explains that the new track "Is a song about communication (or lack thereof) and the growing frustration that comes from having to read between the lines. It is the most raw and revealing song on the album and (ironically) proved to be the most challenging to get over the finish line. The song went through several iterations and the final version has elements from four separate sessions. Eventually I stumbled on a combination of elements that truly supported the immediacy underpinning the songs sentiment. The very act of putting it out into the world is both exciting and scary."

The band's sounds are influenced by the likes of The War on Drugs and The Shins, both of which are resembled in the forthcoming album. Before embarking on the project, Mat Cammarano played sideman on guitar, bass and keys for acts including The Money War, Michael Savage, The Peppermint Club, Nicky Sandover and Bri Clark. Building on from "Holiday Inn", the new single is sure to get fans excited for what is sure to be a huge year for Camarano in 2021.

If Gang Of Youths mellowed out and got really into pouch tobacco you'd get this.
