“It’s sometimes tinted with New Romanticism, other times baroque pop and on rare but welcome moments, surf rock. It’s both vampiric and faerie-like, and Cameras have the ability to translate these polar qualities into gorgeous musical notes and chord progressions.” – LA Weekly

Cameras consists of trio Eleanor Dunlop (vox/keys), Fraser Harvey (vox/guitar/bass) and Ben Mason (drums). Cameras formed in 2008 and began hastily writing and recording, before raking in international attention with airplay from Triple J (Aus), BBC 6 Music (UK) and KCRW (US). Earlier this year, Cameras were invited to tour Australia, opening for art rock legends Roxy Music with Bryan Ferry on their national arena tour.
