Following his debut release ‘C’est Toi’, with iconic US label ANTI (Wilco, Tom Waits), Perth-bred/LA-based artist, Cameron Avery today announces a series of national headline dates. Avery is set to woo audiences across Fremantle, Sydney and Melbourne with his deeply sentimental and rich solo approach in January 2017.
Written about the last time he fell in love, ‘C’est Toi’ is the first cut from his highly anticipated forthcoming album. Charged with a raw sense of nostalgia, paired with lyrics laden in a romantic debris, the track was recorded at Fivestar Studio, where Avery worked alongside long-time friend Jonathan Wilson (Father John Misty, Erykah Badu, Elvis Costello.) The single marked the first time Avery had worked with a co-producer across a project. Shot between New York and LA, the accompanying clip was directed by JOY Collective’s dynamic duo Mike Bennet & Nathan Lewis.
Having made Los Angeles his base and creative playground over the past two years, his solo aesthetic, first teased with track ‘We’re Just Making It Worse’ Ft Alexandria Savior’ is clear, ambitious and cinematic, likening more to influences such as Serge Gainsbourg and Lee Hazelwood and stepping away from the carnal, distortion-soaked sound of The Growl record ‘What Would Christ Do??’.
With his constant touring exploits with Tame Impala, along with his two-man expedition Allbrook/Avery and his first brainchild The Growl, it is an understatement to say that Cameron Avery is a bonafide tour veteran. The string of shows follow from his recent support slots for luminaries The Last Shadow Puppets and Father John Misty.
