Tropic of Cancer Debuts “More Alone”

This week’s episode of Room 205 filmed during MFNW in Portland, OR,
features an exclusive first performance of “More Alone”, the new track from
Los Angeles-based Tropic of Cancer. Tomorrow, an alternate live version of
the track will release as a split 7″ with HTRK on Ghostly International’s

Tropic Of Cancer is the solo project of Camella Lobo. Though her music has been labeled gothic, shoegaze and drone pop, Lobo’s take on her influences is anything but nostalgic. Tropic Of Cancer has managed to imbue its own elusive gaze and craft a strangely beautiful and intoxicating sound in the wake of its predecessors. Formerly a duo with minimal electronic artist Silent Servant (Juan Mendez), Tropic Of Cancer has been stoking a slow-burning cult following since its first EP (The Dull Age) on Berlin-based label, Downwards in 2009. The Sorrow of Two Blooms, an EP
released in 2011 on UK imprint Blackest Ever Black, catapulted the band into the underground spotlight. Since then, Lobo has released a handful of acclaimed recordings on Mannequin Records, Sleeperhold Publications and Ghostly International. Her first full-length album is due early 2013 on Blackest Ever Black. Lobo performs live with assistance from Taylor Burch of the band DVA DAMAS. This song rules.
