Scottish indie pop band formed in 1996 by Tracyanne Campbell, John Henderson, and Gavin Dunbar. Since their debut album Biggest Bluest Hi-Fi released in 2001, they have mainly played acoustic, melancholic folk pop influenced by various sixties artists and contemporary UK indie pop groups.
Camera Obscura released a second album, Underachievers Please Try Harder, the following year, and in September, 2005, the band started recording their next album, named Let’s Get out of This Country, with producer Jari Haapalainen. This album was released on June 06, 2006 and appeared high up in many critical lists of the ‘best albums of 2006’.
