Alex Cameron

Biography


Bearing witness to the baroque clusterfuckery of the world is no longer voluntary. We are all forced to watch. Every possible catastrophe vibrates in our pockets, demanding to be witnessed. A busboy in Tulsa with a below average data plan now holds more of the world in his head than Alexander the Great. The human burden continues to increase and empathy begins to seem like something belonging to a nostalgic past, like a handwritten letter or sex on a train. The classic response to this predicament has been a figure of ironic detachment, a well-groomed young man drinking out of a red plastic cup at a rooftop party. He explains with a smirk why the good thing is actually bad, the bad thing actually good. But now Alex Cameron approaches with his righthand man, Roy Molloy. Cameron knocks the cup from the young man's hand and Molloy threatens him with his life.

ALBUM RELEASE // Alex Cameron’s ‘Jumping The Shark’ Is Out Now Worldwide

“Camerons efficient, minimal compositions create the type of songs that penetrate deeply and linger in your consciousness long after youve stopped listening to them…” – Pitchfork

Recalling David Bowie and Ariel Pink under a Lynch-ian lens, Alex Cameron weaves intelligent, poignant lyricism with primitive 80s synths and seemingly minimalist arrangements. His debut, Jumping The Shark, is a brilliantly raw and confident collection of four-minute tales written to provide you with insight into the inner workings of Cameron. Following European tours supporting Mac DeMarco, Kevin Morby and Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Cameron and his saxophonist, Roy Molloy, will tour this fall supporting Angel Olsen and Thee Oh Sees.
