Epic in both scale and sound, Slowly Rolling Camera's All Things builds on their highly acclaimed self-titled album and EP Into the Shadow. At the heart of the group is the exuberant, powerful and dynamic voice of Dionne Bennett – a commanding vocal presence whose multifaceted gospel lead will send shivers down your spine.
Keyboard player Dave Stapleton crafts sumptuous melodies and strikes the perfect balance between the experimental and the band's deep soul origins. Soundscape artist and producer on electronics Deri Roberts provides the substance and backbone of the group sound and Elliot Bennett generates his unmistakable combination of energetic drive and intricate groove from the drum stool.
Themes of loneliness, love and hope set the mood of the album which is full of honest lyrical observations about relationships and the human condition. From the soulful and intricate groove of "Delusive," with its dense Moog motifs, to the monolithic electronic soundscape of "Oblivion" and the effervescent "Scintillation," the songs on All Things push the band's boundaries further still and build on an already impressive canon of work.
Evoking comparisons with iconic groups such as Portishead and Massive Attack, this album is a true testament to a collective musical talent.
