Portland-based experimental pop artist Keith Cameron captures the chaos of adolescence on Hydroplane, his introspective debut EP inspired by the messiness of growing up.
Packed with distorted vocals, energetic guitar, and addictive melodies, this project has an obvious 'coming-of-age' feel to it. Through a diverse collection of tracks, Keith brings listeners on a suburban escapade, parting ways with his childhood and the hardships he faced. On perhaps the most vulnerable track, “Hydroplane,” Keith holds back tears before launching into a stripped-down alt-pop ballad. It’s a stark contrast from the eclectic, fired-up energy of “Crashed My Bike” or the chilled-out, woozy flow of “Feel Better,” and makes for a dynamic, realistic portrait of the ups-and-downs of adolescence.
Having created such an all-around stand-out debut project, Keith Cameron is on his way up, and this is your chance to know him early.
