Cam Wallace Is Back With Music Video For New Single “The Optical”!!!
Laced with horns, the track’s throwback production underlines the vivid nature of the lyrics as he rhymes, “Remember when I used to pop the tape in, let the record play, start escapin’.” The accompanying visual brings the song to life on screen as Cam’s presence captivates in every frame. The slick edits mirror his smooth lyrical flow as he delivers the refrain, “Got that vision, the optical.”

“‘Breakaway’ is my ode to anyone feeling out of place in a community and needing to find the courage to leave that place in order to fulfill their dreams and self-actualize. It stems from the perspective of leaving a broken home and turbulent childhood behind through self-reinvention. I liked the idea of packaging these two songs as an A/B single because to me they capture opposing moods, but from different sides of the same coin.”
Southern Death Metal Slingers GUILLOTINE A.D. Sign With M-Theory Audio
Says bassist/vocalist Adam Miller, “‘Hammer’ is the first song we wrote after our first album was released. It is pure head-on aggression and shows in a straightforward way what we’re about. It’s a fun violent song about burning witches. It wasn’t intentionally written as such, but it could be a prequel to that Diamond Head song. Raf Ortega made a fantastic lyric video that perfectly captures the essence and intensity of the song. Play it at MAXIMUM VOLUME, soak it all in, and then get ready, because we have so much more to show you.”

Tom Rasmussen releases debut solo single “Fantasy Island Obsession” featuring Kai Isaiah Jamal
“Fantasy Island Obsession”, written by Tom Rasmussen and poet Kai Isaiah Jamal, is a perfect slice of alternative dance pop that sees Tom’s recognisable falsetto float effortlessly over the pulsating production. The single is accompanied by a spellbinding, conceptual video that sees Tom embody the persona of “Seth” – one of the many characters they explore across this debut project – as they writhe around this metaphorical queer island they’ve escaped to… or are trapped on. The team behind the video makes for a perfect melting pot of queer creativity, from director Samuel Douek (Denai Moore, Little Mix, Mabel) to make-up artist Terry Barber (director of make-up artistry at MAC) and stylist Bojana Kozarevic (fashion editor I-D magazine).
