The Band CAMINO
If there’s a certain equation to a perfect pop-rock song—gang vocals, palm-muted power chords, a charming turn of phrase, an ascending chorus, a tight drum fill—then call The Band CAMINO mathematicians. Since 2015, the Nashville band has endeared themselves to fans with a series of blithesome EPs—2016’s My Thoughts on You, 2017’s Heaven, 2019’s tryhard—leading to this moment, The Band CAMINO, their debut self-titled full-length album. And there’s a lot here: the electro-pop cowbell of the crushable “I Think I Like You,” the stadium-sized guitar solo of “Know It All,” the happy handclaps of “1 Last Cigarette,” the heartfelt spacey synth ballad “Who Do You Think You Are?” (If that isn’t enough of a tearjerker, “Sorry Mom” does the trick.) Across 14 tracks, The Band CAMINO proves that they are a band in the business of big feelings—and it feels good.
