Review: Cami Scoundrel – ‘Those Days’

Cami Scoundrel’s latest album, Those Days paints a disarmingly intimate and honest portrait of a person who’s trying to come to terms with herself and the world around her.

During the years she’s spent finding her way through the local music industry Scoundrel has developed a style that’s immediately idiosyncratic and undeniably her own.

Those Days is a shift in sound for the troubadour. Having spent some time on the punk side of the folk-punk spectrum Scoundrel’s gone full indie-folk, telling honest stories with an acoustic guitar to accompany vocals that are tinged with a bit of punk in their directness and subject matter.

Listen While You Read!

The album is a confession and an exploration of a variety of different subjects like cutting off things that were once great but has become toxic in the opening track 'Hustling', honouring the memories of friendships gone by and treasuring existing ones in the upbeat 'Fallen Homies', and dealing with complicated feelings for someone in 'Satellites'.

It’s Scoundrel’s vocal consistency that gives this album its edge. The unconditional honesty that colours her lyrics and gives her stories substance and weight, making them as tangible to us as they are to her.

Not only is Those Days unique in the aural landscape it creates, not once giving in to mainstream temptation, but also in Scoundrel’s songwriting and performance ability. The lyrics are evocative on their own but the vocals bring them to life and create a world as real and vivid as our own.

 

Those Days is available now on all digital platforms including Deezer and Spotify
