      Camouflage
      "Greyscale"

      Label: Bureau B (2015)

      The songs on "Greyscale" have one eye on the club and the other on the heart. Camouflage can inspire dancing, crying and contemplation in equal measure. The single "Shine" starts off small with an 808-beat, then over the course of four minutes it climbs to dizzying heights with strings, choirs and a vocal hook that could not sound more unironic and honest. Marcus Meyn begins with the lines:

      "This is the story,
      we should shout out loud,
      tell everybody,
      that noone lives without:
      Shine Shine Shine
      within your mind."

      There is plenty to despair about every day, but we must always hold on to the ability to radiate from the inside out. More light = more joy in life. It's that simple! The highly danceable "Misery" sings of the purifying effect of the misery and pain that love can inflict. "End Of Words" is both lyrically and musically the melancholy heart of the album. It portrays the grey clouds that we carry within us, and images of the past and present that weigh us down and sometimes leave us speechless. And as if to underline this statement, the dreamy instrumental "Dark Grey" follows directly. "In The Cloud" addresses the fear – in the midst of work, appointments and deadlines – of missing out on the life that had originally been intended.

      That is one of the great qualities of this music: Camouflage is not just some superficial band that bases its existence on churning out dance stompers and love songs. Their music and lyrics touch on nothing less than the big questions of our time.

      Hope is also a theme. "Count On Me" is a declaration of unconditional love. Here Marcus Meyn shares the vocals with Peter Heppner of Wolfsheim.
