Just when you think Cam Avery can’t get any more talented he drops this one on us.
Whether you know him as Tame Impala’s bass player, the former lead of The Growl, one half of Allbrook/Avery or on his solo adventure, or all four, you know he is a master of music.
Last week he whipped out an awesome new track with rock and soul artist Alexandra Savior.
‘We’re just making it worse’ has just incredibly smooth vocals, I can’t decide which singer impresses me more.
Cam’s voice is so deep, alluring and fluid, while Alexandra’s is sexy and sultry.
They sing with such sentiment and emotion, which is what makes the subject matter of the song so realistic and relatable.
The call and response song depicts a couple who have gone their separate ways but both know the feelings are still there, despite being in new relationships.
The production behind it is cool too, beginning with an almost eerie sound, that turns into continuous and soft percussions infused with slow piano throughout.
Written by Avery himself, the track was co-produced by Dave Palmer and recorded in Los Angeles renowned Sound Factory.
Reminds me a little of Adam Green and Binki Shapiro, have a listen to them if you haven’t already.
Avery’s last single ‘You can leave me on Boxing Day’ reached 100k plays on SoundCloud last week.
He’s also been supporting American singer, songwriter, guitarist and drummer Father John Misty, also known as J. Tillman, in Melbourne recently.
Avery was named one of NME’s 2013 Australian Acts to Watch, so we will definitely be keeping an eye on whatever he surprises us with next.
