Australian singer-songwriter Alex Cameron has quietly released two brilliant records defined by their mix of 80s synth cheese and dark, compelling lyrics from the perspective of a failed rock star. The strength of Cameron’s songwriting and lyrics makes for enjoyable repeat listens even as the initial intrigue of the concept tires. You won’t find many songs from the past decade as solid as “Mongrel.”

The Mothlight and Grey Eagle have teamed up to bring Alex Cameron to The Grey Eagle on Friday July 27th. Tickets go on sale on Friday April 7th at 10am. Get them here.
