Cameron Avery has shared a video for his debut single ‘Wasted on Fidelity’. Known for his work as the touring bassist for Tame Impala, Avery offers an ornate yet gritty sound driven by his soulful wit and sweeping arrangements. With his deep, husky baritone, Avery harnesses the dark power and humour of artists like Nick Cave, Scott Walker, and Tindersticks. On Ripe Dreams, Pipe Dreams, Avery channels train-wreck romanticism into timeless music for the modern age.
Avery explains, “I’m in my mid 20’s, I play in a band, I’m ripe to dream. But the pipe dream, the underlying theme of the album, if you really listen, is that all I really want is to have someone in my life and to be in love.”
Based in New York City and originally from Western Australia, Avery had a longtime stint as the drummer for psych-rock band Pond. After joining Tame Impala in 2013, he continued shaping his singular identity as an artist and recorded solo material whenever and wherever he found the time, mostly in LA.
