Alexandra Morte and Nick Bassett began working together in Whirr, but their indie-pop project, Camera Shy, veers off into sweeter, lilting territory. This is just one of many musical projects for Bassett, who is also the bassist for Nothing and formerly was a member of the excellent metal/shoegaze band Deafheaven. Back to the present: Morte and Bassett are releasing a self-titled full-length in July, and today they’ve shared the washed-out bliss of “Colors Radiate.” This thing is so quiet it’s practically a lullaby. The song functions like a tiny callback to the towering, gentle shadow cast by twee in the mid-aughts. Listen.
Camera Shy is out 7/14 via Run For Cover. Pre-order it here.
