Camera Obscura get weird
Being fond of the odd spot of fey, we're always up for the occasional round with Camera Obscura. The Scottish band has announced they've just signed with 4AD, the sometime home of acts such as Bauhaus and Xmal Deutschland. Already critics are looking for words to describe this new direction. Twee-goth? Twoth?
They plan to release a new album in 2009.
Here's what they have to say on the matter:
"We would like to share with you that we are now signed to somewhat smashing record label 4AD. We are understandably excited about this but will endeavor not to reflect this in our facial expressions so as not to cause unnecessary alarm.
We'd like to thank Merge and Elefant who have been our main labels for the past few years and have been lovely and excellent. We are most grateful for all their hard work and for their being good people.
There is lots of work going on behind the scenes and we will soon be telling you when the new album is coming out and when we are going to play some shows and all sorts."
