With John Peel as an early champion, Glasgow’s Camera Obscura are fondly regarded by many as one of the UK’s finest acts; having over the years built up a dedicated following with must-have records and tours throughout Europe, USA, Mexico, Australia and South East Asia. Their 2006 album, Let’s Get Out of This Country (2006), was to prove pivotal for the band, taking them out of the shadows and to long-deserved new heights. “You might not find heartache as enchanting as this anywhere else,” stated All Music Guide in a familiar glowing review.
Three years on from that release and they found themselves signed to 4AD, rubbing shoulders with the likes of Bon Iver, The National and St. Vincent. Their first album for their new label, My Maudlin Career, was a roaring success, gaining the band further new fans, all wooed by lead singer Tracyanne’s ability to still “turn out maudlin torch songs with apparent ease” (Pitchfork – Best New Music).
Having retreated to work on a forthcoming album and take time out of the limelight, this special show marks their first in the city for almost three years and comes after the band play SXSW in Austin, Texas.
“A voice you would follow straight into Hades.” “Her music sounds as somber as ever here, and her distant air remains one of the most absolutely haunting things you’re likely to find anywhere near indie rock.” – Pitchfork. “She has a voice that, in mythological times, could have lured men to their deaths at sea, an intoxicating soprano drenched in gauzy reverb that hits bell-clear heights, lingers, and tapers off like rings of smoke.” The Boston Globe. Her six full length records have garnered critical acclaim throughout the world over the past decade and she returns to NYC to play a special, rare set.
