Aussie Alex Cameron released his new album ‘Forced Witness’ on Secretly Canadian a little earlier in the year, and he’s just wrapped up a UK support run with The Killers.
We already got a seaside-based clip for ‘Runnin’ Outta Luck’ and now he’s back with another video, this time for ‘Politics of Love’. It comes from Alex’s business partner and saxophone player Roy Molloy, who’s devised a video where Alex goes out into the wilderness in his truck and walks off into the distance as the credits roll.
Roy said: “We all wanna know how it’s gonna end you guys. We gonna find ourselves sat robed in the clouds surrounded by humorless good citizens? We gonna wake up in a tube, our fluids bein processed, an endless nightmare in the blink of an eye? Me? I like to think it’s gonna feel just like how it felt before we were born. Nothingness as cool and calm as a snowflake. No news is good news”.
Alex is set to head around the UK on a headline tour in early December before heading back on tour with The Killers next year. Tickets for his headline dates are on sale now.
