4AD Session: Camera Obscura
The latest installment in the "4AD Sessions" series features Like Sugar favorites Camera Obscura taking center stage. The five-track session was filmed in the band’s hometown of Glasgow, at the Tron Theatre. It features tracks from the act’s most recent album, Desire Lines, released earlier this year.
4AD says "Shot as the band were about to head off on a US tour, Tracyanne was heavily pregnant at the time, with her bump growing over the shoot as the baby re-positioned. For the session Iain and Jane made a large backdrop of the silvery tree-scape from the album cover and then set the band in front.
Over the weekend the band received the prestigious King Tuts Songwriting Award as part of the Tartan Clef Awards, held annually by Nordoff Robbins to celebrate the great and good within the Scottish music industry, as well as to raise awareness of their noble work."
