Happy songs for the profoundly miserable.
Camcorder formed in January 2015, after the disbanding of the lo-fi rock outfit FOOLATV (2013-2015), in Woking, Surrey, UK. Since then, the band have rehearsed religiously on a weekly basis, released an EP in 2015 which was recorded in a derelict Bungalow with Alex Loring (Big Spring), gigged around the country whilst being crammed into a 1.2 litre Honda Jazz, done a Summer tour, played over 40 shows, filmed several music videos and recorded their debut full-length record with Bob Cooper in July and November 2017.
Camcorder consists of Tobias Noto (vox/guitar), Owen Baker (drums) and Mathew Peachey (bass). Their sound can be best described as 90s inspired alternative rock with extra focus on the bop. They write songs with a brutal honesty, focusing on dark, provocative lyrics combined with an upbeat backbone.
2017 has by far been the bands busiest year, playing with many great up and coming DIY and independent bands across the UK.
The bands first full length record, entitled 'Suck!' is slated for release in Spring 2018, coming out digitally on Further Sky Records and as a limited tape run on Weather Girl Records. At ten tracks and thirty minutes long, it is a showcase of the bands best and most concise work to date, a collection of only the strongest and most appropriate tracks selected from 25+ songs that have been worked on since the release of 'Manifest Misery' in September 2015. Camcorder are continuing to write, rehearse and record the catchiest and most honest tunes within their mortal ability, and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future.
The band have many more shows planned for the near future, and are kicking off the new year by playing their biggest show to date in January, supporting Jonah Matranga ( of ex-Far fame) at The Star inn, Guildford, Surrey.
There is plenty more to come from the band in 2018, most notably a UK tour to support the new album, which runs from the 9th to the 15th of April, covering the North, Southwest and Southeast of England.
