The Sun and the Moon and So On is brought to us by Camera, a band with a refined yet organic sound out of the United Kingdom. There are only five tracks on the album they recently recorded in their rehearsal studio, but they are all amazing songs to casually enjoy. The songs from the album can remind you of artists like Mark Lanegan or even Citizen Cope. The lead vocalist on Camera has a very enticing voice that is really deep yet refreshing throughout the entire album.
Most of the songs from The Sun and the Moon and So On are a bit slowed down and have a more of a down-tempo type appeal. The song “The Day Before” is a song void of vocals; it is just a hypnotizing melody with a twangy guitar and some piano keys. A track with lyrics that really digs down deep is “Peaceful are the Lonely.” The track explores concepts inspired by loneliness and taking the time to quietly write in a journal, “at night, the stars swallow me whole… sing to the night.” Both the lyrics and the chords found in Camera’s songs are familiar yet comfortably unique and can have an enchanting effect on anyone listening.
The band Camera is successfully signed with a label and has performed at large concert venues, and for good reason. Camera has a natural sound and their instruments and style is neither extravagant nor brash; they get the feeling across musically with just simple and humble tones and lyrics. Like mentioned earlier, several of their tracks are nothing but acoustic jam sessions, “Moment’s Delay” takes the listener on an interesting trail through a misty garden of sorts.
This album is one that can fit into any listening environment and everyone regardless of musical taste will be satisfied. The vocalist has a mesmerizing voice that achieves several different tones and follows along with the fellow instrumentalists’ talents for creating a musical world to get lost in.
