If only more dance EPs were like Kamera’s Phantasy Sound debut. Due out May 11th, Arc starts with an acid-washed stomp (“Prince Valium”), then slides into jittery shades of jungle (the manic yet melodic “Cold Land”) and jagged industrial grooves (“SR”). As familiar as these refrains are, Kamera injects new life into every last note, making sure not one moment is wasted.
If anything, Arc leaves several divergent doors open for a proper LP, culminating in a rumble-packed closer that wouldn’t sound out of place at a Sunn O))) show. Stream “Arcsecond” below, right alongside an edit of “Cold Land” and some upcoming tour dates…
