The Billboard
Camera Obscura have been making music for a decade, carried through the ups and downs of various line-up changes and the tender pain of daily life by the sweetly sad voice of Tracyanne Campbell. Their greatest achievement to date is arguably the critically acclaimed 2006 album Letís Get Out Of This Country.

Letís Get Out Of This Country showcased the bandís ability to produce quality heartfelt pop that can sail unselfconsciously through six impassioned choruses in Lloyd, Iím Ready To Be Heartbroken, alongside the stark, sweeping wails of Country Mile.The album was made in Stockholm and was ably enhanced by the production magic of Swedenís Jari Haapalainen, who was more than qualified to indulge the bandís enthusiasm for reverb.

The release of the album was supported by extensive touring through the UK, Europe, North America, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand and has seen Camera Obscura develop from a somewhat timid live proposition into a confident, dynamic and hopefully charming spectacle.

Camera Obscuraís back catalogue is also a haven of treasures well worth investigation, featuring along the way the talents of Belle and Sebastianís Richard drumming on early EP Park and Ride, the aforementioned Stuart Murdochís production sheen on Eighties Fan, and the many dulcet outings of erstwhile members John Henderson and David Skirving. A full discography can be found on their official website at www.camera-obscura.net
