What?! The Lucksmiths are sharing a new video? Didn’t that band call it quits in 2009!? Well, yes, but they’re putting out their very incredible Naturaliste on vinyl for the very first time since its 2003 release. The video takes a bunch of old video footage and compiles it into one giant story of nostalgic warmth; the band seem carefree and frivolous throughout, which is probably the way we’d all love to be remembered. I feel like the song speaks for itself, as the gentle shuffle of the guitar sound is something that’s filled my own record collection; they were one of the most consistent joys in music for so long. If you’re a fan or just getting turned onto it, the band will release Naturaliste this Friday.
Camera Shy is comprised of Nick Bassett and Alexandra Morte, both of which you may know from Whirr. Together, they’ve joined forces to put their effort into this new dream pop project, which is filled with bright and clean guitar hooks and the vocals of Morte that are just a touch haze to them to give the sound a bit of depth. The track below, “Colors Radiate,” is the perfect example of a sunny dream pop song, but at the same time it’s not overdone or cliched. On the contrary, this brief track will have you swooning over the simplicity and lushness from such a straightforward pop song. Camera Shy‘s debut self titled LP is out July 14th via Run For Cover Records. Preorder it here.
