» BACK TO FULL EVENT SCHEDULE

Glasgow’s CAMERA OBSCURA have been making music for a decade, carried through the ups and downs of various line-up changes and the tender pain of daily life by the sweetly sad voice of Tracyanne Campbell. The band has had several line-up changes since founder members Tracyanne Campbell and Gavin Dunbar first began rehearsing together back in 1996. Since the amicable departure of Nigel Baillie (percussionist, trumpeter and proud daddy) in 2008, who still pops up onstage occasionally, they have existed as a five-piece.

Reaction from fans and media has been enthusiastic: "You might not find heartache as enchanting as this anywhere else," stated All Music Guide. After his successful touches on the last album, Swediesh producer Jari Haapalainen was enlisted once more to work on Camera Obscura's latest. "My Maudlin Career" showcases Jari's wonderful understanding with the band. Songs such as "French Navy", "Honey In The Sun", "Swans" and "Away With Murder" typify another strong body of work that’s sure to delight, ensuring the band to continue their upward trajectory. In 2009 Camera Obscura signed a worldwide deal with feted indie 4AD, in a move that some fans felt a perfect match and "My Maudlin Career" was released on April 20th.

THE PAPERCUTS open.
