In 2017 the band released their debut album Good Things Do Happen to rave reviews, featuring the lead single Dreams. Critics praised 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.
2019 will see the release of their long-awaited follow-up EP, which was recorded inside a church and produced by Island Studios. The new single Dance Dance Dance, released Feb 28th, is just a taste of what’s to come. The upbeat track mashes up saxophone, ukulele, glockenspiel, vintage 1960s mellotrons and no less than three drum kits playing at once. It’s a brave new direction for a band known for melancholic slow burners, as Dance Dance Dance is anything but.
The Cameramen are:
Richard Sallis (lead vocals, guitar, mellotron)
Daniel Altmann (drums, vocals, ukulele, glockenspiel)
Tom de Prinse (piano, synth, sax)
Lenni Hemsely (bass)
