A very good start from North Wales' Camera; a new quartet who have already garnered acclaim from BBC 6Music and XFM for their own brand of emotionally-bruised alternative rock. 'Ashes And Dim Light' can roughly be split into two halves; one which encompasses their rockier side as the other moves into the subtler territory favoured by the similarly-styled Saso. Vocalist, guitarist and pianist Matthew Nicholls is usually the key element; sharing a very similar pattern with My Computer's Andrew Chester, his endearing, slightly cracked voice lends the slower songs a sadness-tinged resonance. This leads to superior material like the mournful 'There's No Way', the lovely melodies to 'I'm Not Ready' and 'All You, All Day' whilst even the touching lullaby-like 'Tell Me What It Is' is handled with a care not normally expected from debut albums. The band fare less well on the relatively pedestrian 'Where You Are' and only on 'Hurt' do we really hear the benefit of the band flexing their muscles on the faster material. Otherwise, they should stick to the more soulful side of their material as they're actually extremely good at it.
