Layers of saturated and distorted guitars create the spirit of Shoegaze, a subgenre of Alt-Rock music developed in the late 1980s. To the surprise of many, Camel Van offers a contemporary reinterpretation thereof with a new song titled, “Lipstick.”
Eargasmic sensations emanating from noisy, dreamy, and melodic soundscapes are worth noting. Nevertheless, what makes this group of multi-instrumental musicians even more interesting is their own diversity.
Indeed, Camel Van is formed by artists of different backgrounds. Native of Mexico, Colombia, and the southeast US, all of them reside in Seattle.
Moreover, they’re sending out similar vibes to bands such as The Pixies, Tennis, and Alvvays. That being said, Shoegaze is still alive and they don’t hesitate to let you know it.
Seeing the need for songs that explore introspective subjects, “Lipstick” seems exactly what the doctor would’ve ordered. Obviously, it feels almost therapeutic to sing it at the top of your lungs.
Hardly anyone can deny the fact visuals embrace an original concept. With the city’s breathtaking views, these talented guys unveil a funny story full of twists and turns, leaving you craving more.
