If the possibilities of a futuristic, surf-punk album with noisier and quieter moments appeals to you, Instant Camera - Alive on Departure may be just for you. -The Philler

Biography

Instant Camera brings in pop songwriting with an almost psychotic edge. With a number of aggressive punk moments, the music is also amplified with an atmospheric pitch. Taking equal cues from Eno as well as American underground music, Instant Camera creates a punk album in concept, but with a cinematic feel.

The band recorded the debut last summer at Jason Hayden's basement studio, the Playground, sometimes using as many as 30 tracks to lay down one song.

The band had the disc mastered at the Walkmen's Marcata Studios in New York.

Lyrically, the album explores the tension and fear that complicates daily American life. Subjects such as paranoia, isolation, and an overall awareness of society destroying itself are clearly present within the three minute blasts that populate the album.

With "Alive on Departure" still warm on the shelves, the record has been in rotation on several college and specialty radio stations. Instant Camera already has fanciful visions of leaving Louisville to record an EP later this year and possibly wandering up north for a tour.
