Sydneys Alex Cameron presents the third single, The Comeback, from his debut album, Jumping The Shark, out August 19th on Secretly Canadian. The Comeback follows the release of the sleaze-pop jam of Shes Mine and the undeniable Take Care of Business, or as Cameron would prefer you say, the third part in a series of four minute short stories dealing with the trappings of show business. Of all three, none deals with that topic more directly than The Comeback. Narcissism, competition, and desperation are all wrapped up and served to the listener in a pulsing and evocative statement.

Recalling David Bowie and Ariel Pink under a Lynch-ian lens, 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.
