The Hidden Cameras‘ fifth studio album, Origin:Orphan, is its first on the Arts & Crafts label. There is a ominousness in the harmonies that does relent over the course of the album, tempered by the sweet melodies, while orchestral and brass blasts add to the drama of the musical feast on offer. With synth, flutes, guitar and drums also vying in the mix Origin:Orphan offers up a sumptuous feast indeed!
