Alex Cameron sera de retour sur album début mars

par Quentin, le 22 janvier 2022

Alex Cameron, probablement le loser le plus magnifique de ces dix dernières années, vient d'annoncer qu'il serait de retour pour un quatrième album. Oxy Music succèdera donc à l'excellent Miami Memory et verra le jour le 11 mars sur Secretly Canadian

Jason Williamson (Sleaford Mods) et Lloyd Vines prendront place à la table des convives et on est assez curieux de voir la couleur que leurs apports donneront à la synth-pop de l'Australien. Après "Sara Jo", "Best Life" est le nouveau single clippé qu'on peut se mettre sous la dent. Après celui-ci, vous trouverez les mots d'Alex Cameron au sujet d'Oxy Music.


“The album is a story, a work of fiction, mostly from the perspective of a man. Starved of meaningful purpose, confused about the state of the world, and in dire need of a reason to live - a person can, and according to the latest statistics, increasingly will, turn to opioids. This is one of those people.”

“The Internet. Our great Totem of information dedicated to the Gods yet to visit from a future born out of 7.9 billion online versions of human history. A tower of love and hate, passion and terror, one million retweets of ten hundred thousand total fails. America’s funniest home videos. Our best, most dope memes crowned atop the statue - our greatest achievements, the shoulders that lift the grand dome of internet glory. The view from the top is gorgeous. A stunning likeness of the most like-able content."

“And holding it up, the weight bearing colossus of whisper-solid data and hollow columns of caps locked opinions and giant pillars of twisted logic. Zero Likes. Zero Comments. Zero shares. Infinitely multiplied until too mountain-like to move. The greatest show on earth performed to an audience of nobody."

“One percent is what we see and what we follow drifting atop the cloud. It’s beautiful, what we’ve created. And the masses below sing into the chamber, echoes of their love songs clashing and rebounding off one another’s - the messages too distorted to discern. Received by nobody. But necessary for everybody."

“Let’s face it, we’ll never make content good enough for the Gods above. Let’s leave that to the disciples. The rest of us can just stay out here, living our best lives.”
