With ease, front woman Tracyanne Campbell’s smooth, candied vocals and wry Scottish story telling illustrate the challenges of life. Themes often circle around heartbreak, a common thread running through their recent album Desire Lines, released June 4. The album title nods to life’s uncommon paths that are marked by wear, not by signs; the paths our feet choose naturally. Forging its own desire lines, Camera Obscura’s unconventional style is well off the beaten path.

With ease, front woman Tracyanne Campbell’s smooth, candied vocals and wry Scottish story telling illustrate the challenges of life. Themes often circle around heartbreak, a common thread running through their recent album Desire Lines, released June 4. The album title nods to life’s uncommon paths that are marked by wear, not by signs; the paths our feet choose naturally. Forging its own desire lines, Camera Obscura’s unconventional style is well off the beaten path.
