Alex Cameron With Roy Molloy On Horn
And Special Guests Body Type
Alex Cameron is one of a kind: a notorious misfit, enigmatic storyteller and subtle concept artist. Trainspotters will recognise him from Sydney-based electronic trio Seekae, but his solo project with his righthand man, Roy Molloy is from a completely different world. With Forced Witness, Cameron’s solution to the difficulties we face is a danceable and dangerous earnestness, a sense of honesty that heals and relieves even as it cleaves us or makes us laugh in self-defense.
He’s offering portraits of misfits’ views of the world, presented without illusion. These songs are alive with the rich detail of life lived and the radical distinctiveness of the stories they tell feel universal. In these chaotic times when we aren't able to look away, Cameron is offering us a pure account of the world as he's seen it. Be sure to check out ‘Strangers Kiss’, his recent duet with Angel Olsen that comes with a video clip starring and directed by Jemima Kirke of Girls fame.
