Alex Cameron announces international tour, releases new video for "Miami Memory"

It’s a testament to the overwhelming plethora of music being made that I can go years without having heard of Alex Cameron, despite the fact that his candid lyrics and glam-adjacent melodies have earned him more than a few fans in a relatively short amount of time. One could also attribute his rise to the Angel Olsen musical affiliation, or the fact that he’s toured in support of the equally quirky Mac DeMarco; but the appeal starts to become especially obvious once you acknowledge and appreciate the songwriting on his most recent album Forced Witness, which came out on the Secretly Canadian imprint in 2017. There’s just something tremendously refreshing about a contemporary rendition of Bowie who sings honestly about internet porn and makes a metaphor out of underwear skid marks!

If this is what you’re looking for in your music these days, good news! Cameron’s video for his newest track “Miami Memory,” watchable below, highlights the Sydney-born musician’s first new music since Forced Witness, though Jemima Kirke’s physical presence dates back a fair amount of time. The song is clearly in ode to arguably the one part of Florida that isn’t always justifying the use of that Bugs Bunny gif.

COMPLETELY COINCIDENTALLY: Cameron’s touring internationally beginning in September! Check the dates after the vid, and get your hands on “Miami Memory” right over here.
