Un-fucking-believable.

Camera Obscura. They came, and since our hearts had already been stolen by them prior to this, they had to settle for parts of our kidneys, livers and lungs. They opened the set with “Come back Margaret” and closed with “Razzle Dazzle Rose”, which was appropriate since the entire performance was, well, dazzling.

No unnecessary stage gimmicks, no prancing around like primates, no attempts to fire up the crowd with corny messages, just plain, simple, soothing music. Tracyanne was a real darling, Carey looked stunning as ever and Nigel entertained us with multiple instruments. Quite simply put, Camera Obscura swept all of us off our feets, lifted us a couple of hundred feet up and kept us there for an hour and a half.

Thanks a million for a fantastic time. Music was phenomenal, atmosphere was excellent. The “best audience” comment, however, well, everybody lies. Camera Obscura, you guys are not exempted from that. But nice try anyway. Whoever sent Camera Obscura to singapore, please, for the love of god, send Spoon next.
