Track Of The Day #440: The Hidden Cameras – Skin & Leather


The Hidden Cameras
are a Canadian band who apparently play gay church folk music. Led by Joel Gibb, there is certainly a gay slant to many of the lyrics, yet the sound is very much embedded in the eighties indie pop scene with influences from Tears For Fears, Aztec Camera and even Grace Jones. The latest album is their sixth, called ‘Age’ and is an assured collection of well performed songs, one of which sits here for your enjoyment.
