Biography

Combining an inclination for melodic electro-pop with
an art rock aesthetic borrowed from bands such as
Stereolab and Sonic Youth, (in)camera debuts with
their brand of lo-fi experimentalism giving birth to a
lushly layered framework. The Cincinnati-based group, led by bassist, Jay McCubbin of The Wolverton
Brothers, sits on the fringe of rock -- McCubbin's
alternative bass melodies set the tone, while drenched with droning washes of rich notey feedback by guitarist Robert Paquette, warm swells of a vintage
Rheim organ from keyboardist Shelagh Larkin,
electronic inflections of a Nord analog synth by
keyboardist, Susan Smith, accented by various eclectic samples all held together by the versatile and
impenetrable percussion of veteran drummer, Bill
Bullock of Roundhead. This instrumentation is topped
off by the infectious alternative harmonies of Larkin
and Smith as well as the arty unexpected songwriting
authorship by the two female artists. The sound is a
hybid of eclectic pop that ranges from moody sketches to postwave rock.

Lyrics

juniper

Written By: Smith

So he came your way
When he had to go
There were petal growing in the snow, in the snow(2x)

Marigold lemon circles
Swim in jasmine tea
Eating crimson cherries by the sea by the sea (2x)

Silently you fall to the shadows of your mind
Flowers on her stockings wilting away, wilting away

Soft winds of juniper
Fill the meadow green
Days of wine and roses not what it seems, what it seems (2x)

will to power

Written By: smith

I can't I won't
I can't I won't uh huh

The choices that you make
The maxims that you break
Rational or obsurd
Can't explain, can't explain
You've got your free will
Truth or consequence
World viewed from inside
Will to power, Will to power

I can't I won't
I can't I won't uh huh
I can't I won't
I can't I won't uh huh

The choice that you make
The maxims that you break
Rational or obsurd
Can't explain, can't explain
You've got your free will
Truth or consequence
World viewed from inside
Will to power, Will to power

I can't I won't
I can't I won't uh huh
I can't I won't
I can't I won't uh huh

Well it cuts like a knife in your little heart, it cuts like a knife in your little heart, cuts like a knife in your little heart

inbetween what's said and seen
lies the silence where we hide
lost in time, space and form
makes me fail to recognize
inbetween what's said and see

before the end of the day
don't let it all slip away
before the end of the day
don't let it all slip away
don't let it all slip away
don't let it all slip away

as the years pass pass quickly by
in slo motion we arrive
caught off guard we stumble thorough
makes me fail to realize
inbetween what's said and see

before the end of the day
don't let it all slip away
before the end of the day
don't let it all slip away
don't let it all slip away
don't let it all slip away
