Camens Are Bringing Banging Indie Vibes from Stoke-on-Trent [VIDEO]
I’d be lying to you if I said that prior to 2016 I was listening to much else other than EDM and Hip Hop. While I grew up on Classic Rock (thanks mom), I kind of lost interest in the Rock scene pre-high school and a new love seemed far from plausible. Luckily for me, my blog, which started as a strictly EDM blog, put a crazy amount of new talent on my radar – and genre no longer became a deciding factor in whom I support. Thanks to a handful of talented up and coming bands, my Indie Rock Solid playlist is now one of my personal favs… Camens are one of those bands. Comprised of Scott Powell (Bass, lead vocals), Luke Brightmore (Drums, Backing Vocals), James Corbishley (Lead Guitar), and Josh Egan (Rhythm Guitar, Backing Vocals), Camens has been slowly gaining momentum since launching in 2017 – now its full steam ahead.
While the tune may be a bit depressing beneath the surface, the group promises that there is hope hidden in between the lines, stating, “Do not believe the things you tell yourself when your sad and alone, keep going, even when its dark and life’s shit.”While there may be many bands around the world in the same lane as Camens, I’d be hard pressed to say that most of them do it as well. With a clear musicality hidden beneath clever lyrics and dynamic arrangements, Camens have yet to release a tune that doesn’t bring exactly what fans of the genre are looking for. It is only a matter of time before they catch on with the masses – and when they do, I’ll be happy to know I didn’t miss a beat.
