[lastfm]Camera Obscura[/lastfm] is not your average dark-room optical device anymore, these Scotties have been playing music since 1996. Straight outta Glasgow, you seriously haven’t heard anything quite like the voice of lead singer Tracyanne Campbell. They’re playing day two of Coachella, April 17th.
