Camera2 : Forever Lost and some other stuff

Camera2, whom we featured a couple of months earlier for their smashing video ‘Just about made it’, have come out with a new single and a video for it. Titled ‘Forever Lost’, the video features the same main protagonist who made his debut in the previous video. It is more about how long cna you fool yourselves or convince yourselves about hope and how sometimes it is easy to cave in or soak it in, depending on how you perceive it. The sound is like a combination of ‘Cut Copy’ with a hint of U2 thrown in near the chorus sections. I am unsure if I introduced the band in my previous post but Brooklyn foursome Camera2 is made up of producer-songwriter-vocalist – Andy Chase (Tahiti 80/Juliana Hatfield/Smashing Pumpkins), guitarist – Michael Jurin (Stellastarr*), bassist – Aric Gillis (Teenage Kick) and drummer – Mike Williams (Teddybears). The band came together in mid-2012 and soon after completed an album Andy wrote and produced in his home studio with co-production by Blondfire’s Bruce Driscoll. Camera2 is a decidedly new direction and a departure from the sounds of the previous projects for all the members who have now stepped into a harder hitting, darker, upbeat and more electronically driven indie-universe. Now for the soundcloud link to the song as always :

I was about to finish the post off here, but the soundcloud sequence for Camera 2 has thrown up a few more recent gems, which I would like to share with all of you:

Wasted is a particularly kickass track in my humble opinion. If you like what you hear, please follow them on facebook or on their website:
