The Cameramen are a 4-piece progressive pop band from Adelaide. The band mix a variety of instruments with evocative lyrics to create a chamber-pop influenced sound which has been compared to The Eels, The Divine Comedy, The Beach Boys and Radiohead.
In 2017 the band released their debut album Good Things Do Happen to rave reviews, with critics praising the haunting arrangements, lush production, melodic skill and willingness to explore the limits of the pop genre.
Over the past year the band have been a prolific presence in the Adelaide music scene. Among other things the band co-headlined the Keys to the City festival with Only Objects, were a well-received guest on Peter Goers radio program, and even played the dog festival Houndwave.
2019 will see the release of their long awaited follow-up EP (it's nice to meet you), out May 23rd. It was recorded inside a church and produced by Island Studios.
The first single Dance Dance Dance mashes up saxophone, ukulele, glockenspiel, vintage 1960s mellotrons and no less than three drum kits playing at once. Carillon, the second single, also maintains that high energy. It’s a brave new direction for a band known for melancholic slow burners.
The (it's nice to meet you) EP is supported by the SA Music Development Office.
