This is Camella, Lead Singer and Guitarist of London-based band, Cosmic Strip. As their name suggests, Cosmic Strip serves up hazy, shoegazey, psychedelic Indie. As Camella descibes it, it's 'music to watch girls by, music to move the stars'.


Their latest single is Echo Chamber, and the stunning video was premiered on Noisey earlier this year. Notable in many ways, it was filmed in some of London's most entrancing locations and directed by well known music photographer Charlotte Patmore.


The video is truly a feast (or trip) for the eyes. Think kaleidoscopic lipstick, latex, prisms, mirrors, infinite corridors and neon lighting. Filmed in The Hive at Kew Gardens - an enormous glass beehive structure - it is an uplifting and pleasantly hypnotic study of girls, glass and geometry.


If Echo Chamber is anything to go by, this year will certainly be a memorable one for this band. So, as Spring slowly starts to haul in a long-overdue summer - we got the chance to catch up with Camella to find out what 2018 has in store for Cosmic Strip and suggest that you do too.

IS THERE A COMMON LOVE OR THEME THAT BRINGS YOU ALL TOGETHER?

I think when I first started writing for Cosmic Strip, it was all very nostalgic, slightly lamenting, but I feel that was perhaps due to my state of mind at the time. My writing does always tend to have sad connotations attached to it but I've naturally drifted more towards it being a comment on a certain subject rather than my own personal feelings and emotions.


YOU GUYS ALREADY HAVE QUITE A CV IN TERMS OF FESTIVALS. HAS THERE BEEN A STAND-OUT FESTIVAL SLOT?

I think when we played Citadel last year it felt like such a turning point for us. I'd spent the las two years developing my music and it wasn't until last summer when we released 'Goodbye' that I felt truly confident and proud of the music I was writing. We spent the summer playing festivals and gigs around the country but when we played the Kopparberg x DIY stage at Citadel we were expecting nobody to turn up and when we arrived it was one in one out during our set to an over 500 capacity space. The year before we had opened Citadel on the Main Stage to 20 people, so it felt like such an accomplishment for us.
