Up until last week I had never really been a fan of Camera Obscura. Funny that my opinion of the band would be swayed by a b-side to one of their singles.
Obscura's single, "If Looks Could Kill," will release officially on January 23rd in the US, and January 29th in the UK and Europe.
"If Looks Could Kill" is a good track. The band struck gold, though, with the first b-side, "Hands Up Baby," a duet between Tracyanne Campbell and Kenny McKeeve.
Camera Obscura- Hands Up Baby
"Now I could end this here/die and take you with me dear/it could be so easy"
"I don't care what you do/I'll still be rid of you/Just make your mind up baby"
Definitely one of my favorite tracks of 07 so far. To be honest, I'm also digging the third track that comes along with the single, "Alaska."
