[Watch] Cameras - "Defeatist" (Video)

From their upcoming debut full length In Your Room comes the video for "Defeatist" from Australian indie outfit Cameras. Director Jens Hertzum managed to create a video that captures the essence of the bands sound, which somehow always maintains a steady balance of brightness and darkness in each song.

Their debut album In Your Room is slated for release on October 25th courtesy of Manimal Vinyl. Cameras will also be making their stateside debut in LA and during CMJ in NYC this month, so keep a lookout for more buzz about these guys.
