Last month, The Band CAMINO rang in their new era with their song, ‘Told You So.’ We were already so stoked, but ‘What Am I Missing?’ makes us even more excited for their upcoming album, with no set release date yet. Being huge CAMINO stans, we’ll keep you updated.
CAMINO releasing ‘What Am I Missing?’ on April 21st, the first day of Mercury Retrograde is very fitting. There’s a lot that goes into that, but we’ll keep it short and simple: past feelings come back, even if you don’t want them to; aka this song. Your head asks the question, but your heart doesn’t have the answer.
While their last single was a completely new sound for them (we still love it), this latest single is more of a mix between that and their previous music. But lyrically, they’re opposites from one another. ‘Told You So’ was an upbeat, positive, post-breakup song. What you’d like to appear to be after a breakup. While ‘What Am I Missing?’ is sonically upbeat, it’s the kind of post-breakup song you listen to lying on the floor alone, at 2 AM. We’re obsessed with the parallel between the songs.
‘Told You So’
“Let me guess,
you miss me,
heard that I was here with somebody.”
‘What Am I Missing?’
“I go home with distractions,
to try to get a reaction,
out of you but it never works.”
You can watch the lyric video below. Personally, we’ll be watching it on repeat to learn all of the lyrics, so that we can sing our hearts out when we hear it live.
Speaking of seeing them live…
They’re going on tour with Grayscale in the UK. You can get tickets here. For those of us who aren’t in the UK, all we have to say is, “Please, please, please make this a worldwide tour.” If you aren’t able to see them on their UK tour, they’ll also be at Bonnaroo SuperJam! You can get tickets for that here.
