Interview with Alex Cameron, mentions working with Jem

A new interview with Jemima’s boyfriend Alex Cameron, by Variance Magazine, were he mentions working with her and perhaps future collaborations, perhaps one more music video!

Alex Cameron is one of the acts not to be missed when Treasure Island Music Festival returns after a year’s hiatus to a new Bay Area location, on Oct. 12 and 13. Cameron is one of many Australian names on this non-cookie cutter festival bill, late in the season, that also boasts Lord Huron, A$AP Rocky and Jungle. Other established Aussies include Courtney Barnett, Tame Impala, Pond and Hiatus Kaiyote.

Cameron’s star, however, is fast ascending. His music has been singled out by Henry Rollins, shouted out by Russell Crowe and he was invited to Las Vegas by Brandon Flowers to work on The Killers’ last album.

Forced Witness, his stellar second album, picks up from where Jumping The Shark, his 2013 debut, left off—it’s a continued exploration of the male misfit, in his many unsavory guises. In earlier incarnations, hair slicked back, Cameron wore face make-up to age him and suits like a faded lounge singer, calling to mind Nick Cave. In Forced Witness there’s less artifice; he takes a more heartland stance, in blue jeans and white singlet.

Cameron puts under the microscope the ways these men interact with women; on the internet, in song and the quotidienne. Though he never condones their behavior, he paints intimate portraits of these outre men, warts and all. Like biblical parables, sometimes he offers hope and maybe redemption.

Each song offers a separate vignette and it’s only upon repeated listens that you hear the full extent of the toxic masculinity lurking beneath. “Runnin’ Outta Luck,” “Candy May” and “Studmuffin96” are incredibly catchy, couched in the sheen of ‘80s synth-powered melodies with a good measure of St. Elmo’s Fire-era saxophone solos from “business partner” Roy Molloy.

Sydney-born but now residing in Queens, New York, Cameron took a moment to speak to us from his current home about these misfits, his experience writing with Flowers and acting opposite girlfriend Jemima Kirke (Girls) in his music videos.

Jemima interviewing Alex Cameron for “Issue Magazine”

Jemima’s boyfriend Alex Cameron is featured in Issue Magazine and the interview and questions are by Jemima herself. You can read the full interview in the press archive and on Issue Magazines site you can view some great shoots and videos!

“YOU TRY TO BE A GOOD PERSON AND HOPE THAT OTHER GOOD PEOPLE START TO ORBIT AROUND YOU.”

Alex Cameron’s Forced Witness responds to our increasing inability to escape the catastrophes, trends and news circulating the globe. The LP comes on the heels of last year’s Jumping the Shark and is the second album by creative and business partners Alex Cameron and saxophonist Roy Molloy, who together form “Alex Cameron.” In addition to the strength of Cameron and Molloy’s musician, Forced Witness includes collaborations with enviable guests Angel Olsen, Brandon Flowers, Kirin J. Callinan and Foxygen’s Jonathan Rado.

Actor Jemima Kirke directed and starred in the music video for Forced Witness track “Stranger’s Kiss,” a wistful duet between Cameron and indie folk rock darling Angel Olsen. Unbeknownst to Cameron and Molloy, Kirke, who is also Cameron’s girlfriend, submitted an intuitive set of questions for the first half of this interview. Together, the creative duo discuss the making of “Stranger’s Kiss,” pervasive anxiety and gross toes.
