With his debut solo album due out next week, Colyn Cameron is sharing the video for album cut “Hallucinations” via Exclaim!. Directed by Cameron, his goal was to “make a mini western themed sequence of moments that capture the intimacy and vulnerability of being imperfect whilst in love. I wanted to humorously reveal the defeat of the main male character.” Together with cinematographer Madison Rowley, the video was shot in the “truest wild western canyon we could find east of Portland, Oregon.“

Set for release on October 12, Sad & Easy is a collection of songs that arose from the experience of being firmly rooted in one place, allowing for a more patient approach to writing and recording. Self-produced and recorded direct to 1/2" tape in his small studio apartment, the album is an outpour of Colyn’s artistic experimentation, fusing influences of the late 60’s and calling to mind the likes of David Vandervelde or Christopher Owens.

Following an international tour and the release of Wake Owl’s last album Kaleidoscopes in 2017, Colyn returned to a rather average lifestyle, uncovering the muse that would guide his first solo release during the downtime of his 9-5. After spending the last 10 years living in different places and always feeling a little restless, Colyn found a home base in Los Angeles, one that felt alive enough to quell desire to flee, while still keeping a challenge in the foreground.

In anticipation of his debut solo album, Sad & Easy set for release on October 12, singer-songwriter Colyn Cameron shares new single “Coolest”. A follow-up to first single “Loss For Words” and its psychedelic-influenced video, the new track sees Colyn fusing raw vocals and reverb drenched guitars while thematically exploring the nature of addiction. Earmilk calls “Coolest” a “truly addictive track.”

“There is both beauty and great pain that come with addiction,” Colyn comments. “This song is speaking of an acceptance of both, somewhat lightheartedly. There is also a kind of arrogance that comes with the veil of substance and somebody’s complete reliance on a crutch. It’s an interesting thing to prod."

“Loss For Words” Video Still

Having releasing two albums on Vagrant Records and one independently as the acclaimed indie-pop outfit Wake Owl, singer-songwriter Colyn Cameron returns with his debut solo album Sad & Easy set for release on October 12. Self-produced and recorded direct to 1/2" tape in his small Los Angeles studio apartment, the album is an outpour of his artistic experimentation, fusing psychedelic influences of the late ‘60s and calling to mind the likes of David Vandervelde and Christopher Owens.

Today, he shares the first single “Loss For Words” alongside a new video filmed in the Mojave Desert town of Needles, California. A potent journey into the heart of what the song represents, the video was shot on 16mm film over the course of 48 hours.

“This song is about being less serious with what might seem the saddest thing. Total misunderstanding within total simplicity and beauty,” Colyn comments. “Can you imagine feeding a cherry to someone in order to overcome hopelessness? My friend Robert thought it would be nice to drive to Needles, CA and all the while collect neglected fruits that could revive and surprise like the strangeness of Highway 40.”
