At any given Camera Cult show, you’ll find anthemic melodies, shimmering synths, and an undeniable synergy among the guys onstage. In 2018 their live performances brought their Talk Nice EP to life and evolved into a cohesive, well-oiled presentation of indie pop at its finest. Lead singer Ricky J. Vasquez commands audiences with a guitar strapped on, candidly dancing around the stage like a child in his bedroom with the stereo at full blast. David Gonzalez locks down the band’s party vibe by effortlessly manning the DJ station. Drummer Skyler Scholtes devours drum solos, amplifying the group’s already bursting sound. Their growing, dedicated fan base completes the experience by dancing throughout the shows and singing along to set staples “Vice Grips” and “Location.”
