Video: Tropic of Cancer "Plant Lilies at My Head"
- Words: Leo Maymind
The solo project of Camello Lobo, Tropic of Cancer has been slowly narrowing in on a unique melancholic sound, an unsettling angle she also takes on her latest video. Taken from Lobo's recently released Restless Idylls album, "Plant Lilies at My Head" is a moody, slow-burning drone that builds upon layers of distant vocals and a plaintive, chorused guitar line. The track's accompanying video uses grainy footage and muted color palette to coincide with the slow unraveling of Tropic of Cancer's song, the effects of which feel eerily heavy.
