WE REVIEW THE NEW SINGLE FROM CAMENS

‘Lying Won’t Get You Anywhere’ is the newest single from Stoke-On-Trent based indie band Camens.

I tell you what, I don’t know what I was expecting, but I absolutely loved it.
It’s a real mood booster.

This electric track hooks you from the off. It combines rock and electronica really well and creates a morphed modern indie child of a song.
It gave me a feel of The Wombats and Circa Waves, which is a big tick from me.

The vocals are stunning, I love the guitar backing and the drums only compliment it all.
It flows well and was fighting the urge to sing-a-long, was an incredibly easy song to pick up!

Halfway through it switches tone and slows right down, which I wasn’t expecting, but I don’t hate it.

The lyrics are relatable and emotional, but they’re brought to life.
I particularly enjoyed the guitar solo towards the end, it really brought it to a nice close.

My only criticism is it isn’t longer! An album is due for Camen soon, but if this single isn’t anything to go by, it’ll be banger after banger.

I can see this being on a film soundtrack, two twenty-something’s falling in love, montage? you know the score, this song is perfect for it.

It’s certainly a brilliant addition to your summer playlist. You can catch them on the RGM Tramlines fringe stage in Sheffield on July 26th.
