Alex Cameron presents the new single/video, ‘Miami Memory‘ directed by Cameron, and starring himself, his business associate and sax player Roy Molloy and actress, Jemima Kirke. Watch it HERE.
A love song to the city, ‘Miami Memory‘ embraces the lustful air of Miami and explores both Alex’s personal relationship with both the city and his girlfriend. Throughout, Alex’s sultry and playful delivery embraces themes of sex positivity, love and reflection. Premiered this past Sunday on KCRW’s Henry Rollins’ show, ‘Miami Memory‘ is the first new music Cameron has released since 2017’s Forced Witness.
“‘Miami Memory’ is a story about how we audition in the present for our future selves to enjoy in retrospect. In that way, tender memories that we share together are captured in thought and stored with the same electricity that keeps our heart beating,” says Cameron. “It’s a gift for my girlfriend Jemima, and it is dedicated to the artist Greer Lankton and her partner Paul Monroe. I am lucky to have learned that a group of people can be a shining light.”
The new track comes off the back of a succession of notable feats back home, including impressive (and star-studded) sets at last year’s Laneway Festival, a run of sold out headline shows across the country, and a national arena tour in support of The Killers, and more dates alongside the likes of Mac DeMarco, Unknown Mortal Orchestra and Angel Olsen.
Alex Cameron will be heading back on the road this year on an upcoming European and North American tour, including shows in Chicago, Toronto, New York and Los Angeles. See full dates and details below.

PRAISE FOR ALEX CAMERON
FBi Radio Feature Album
2SER Feature Album
“The art-sleaze of Alex Cameron’s second album transcends its surface-level
smarm to become a biting piece of commentary. Thankfully, the songs
are as effortlessly catchy as they are eminently creepy.”
“Forced Witness is intimate, bold, and honest.”
“Cameron continues to make the deplorable irresistible on LP two.”
Rolling Stone AU (4 stars)
“On ‘Stranger’s Kiss’, Cameron’s duet with Angel Olsen, the ambition of
Alex Cameron expands from insular synthpop to a sweeping,
Springsteen-inspired ballad about a strange loneliness.”
“…a record of perky 80s jams…”
Mikey Cahill, Herald Sun (4 stars)
“…an album that broadens Cameron’s horizons as, not only a musician, but as a showman.”
The Line Of Best Fit
“Alex Cameron has perfected the fine art of telling dark, sometimes sordid stories combined with oddly upbeat tunes.”
The Music (4 stars)
