Listen: Lockets - 'Camera Shy'
It’s all dream-pop and we’re fine with that. We will never get over it, we will never really want to get over it. Not until bands like Philly’s Lockets stop coming out with such well structured debut tracks like 'Camera Shy'. The amazing vocal textures from Dani in the first section will totally fill your mind with peace. When Todd switches from synth to guitar around the three minute mark, you will literally fly away. For sure.
You can grab Camera Shy over at their Bandcamp. Make your move.

They recently released an EP called Life, which has nothing to do with their previous release, Ground Zero (2010). [read more]

Keep up people, keep up. [read more]
