Camera Obscura

Album review: Camera Obscura, “Desire Lines”

Camera Obscura’s joy is always filtered through a smudged, foggy lens. It’s not that the Glaswegian indie-pop band is ashamed of the infectious melodies and girl-group harmonies that define its songs, or that they’re afraid to slather their compositions with rich string flourishes or upbeat percussion.

Live review: Camera Obscura @ the Bluebird Theater

Tracyanne Campbell leads her band through a set of satisfyingly bittersweet indie pop at the Bluebird on Monday. Photos by Nina Barry. Thunder and cold rain didn't deter a surprisingly large crowd from gathering on Monday night at the Bluebird to see Scottish Indie-pop band Camera Obscura.
