*DATE CHANGE TO FEB 14TH* I OH YOU & Noisey are thrilled to facilitate the return of good friends and business partners.. Alex Cameron with Roy Molloy on horn – Live in Sydney.
To celebrate the release of his critically acclaimed sophomore LP Forced Witness, Alex Cameron is teaming up with I OH YOU & Noisey to hold two very special, long awaited St. Jerome's Laneway sideshows in Sydney and Melbourne.
In the last 18 months, Alex has spent the majority of his time on the road in the Northern Hemisphere touring with the likes of Angel Olsen, Whitney and The Killers and garnering high praise at each turn and in turn, earning himself and Roy a hugely dedicated following who hang from their every word.
"Forced Witness transcends its surface-level smarm to become a biting piece of commentary" - Pitchfork,
"it's got more than enough power to carry you through the emotions it elicits" - The Fader

His second LP Forced Witness sees Alex at his most visceral, cutting best. With Forced Witness, Cameron's solution to the difficulties we face is a danceable and dangerous earnestness, a sense of honesty that heals and relieves even as it cleaves us or makes us laugh in self-defense. He's offering portraits of misfits' views of the world, presented without illusion. Recorded in Berlin in an old East German radio station, Los Angeles, and Las Vegas, and produced by Cameron along with Foxygen's Jonathan Rado, these tracks at first seem shamelessly entertaining, the driving rhythms
and rousing melodies embellished at every turn by Molloy's warm hornwork.
Alex Cameron will be joined by special guests TBA.
