Cameron AG, aka Cameron A Grote, is an Oxford-based multi-instrumentalist that has slowly been moving tracks through the web since last October. In that short time, he’s put together three nifty little bedroom productions, but his most enterprising release to date, “Hotel Radar,” has been tucked under his bedside table. Today, Grote has lifted the track from the depths of his bedroom to premiere it here, exclusively at IC.
Following in the footsteps of Youth Lagoon, Grote marries soft keys with tender, boyish vocals that loom over the airy backdrop. At times, you can hear him channeling Trevor Powers, but when he breaks out that snarling guitar riff, all comparisons draw to a close. As he shreds through the guitar, you can hear synths begin to twinkle in the background, adding some depth to this rather straightforward pop tune. If you’ve got a weakness for warm melodies and voluminous guitar solos, Cameron AG is the man for you!
