about

Restless Idylls is the debut album by Tropic of Cancer.

It consists of eight new recordings, written and performed by Camella Lobo in Los Angeles, with additional production from Karl O'Connor (Regis) in New York and London. It marks ToC's return to Blackest Ever Black two years after the three-track EP The Sorrow Of Two Blooms, the label's third release and one if its most cherished.

Its themes? The usual: romance, devotion, pain and helplessness. Mixed up mortals struggling against the brute mechanics of fate, and proving unequal to the task. A forced retreat into private idylls of longing, faith, mystery, even misery.

Lobo’s most varied and accomplished work to date, Restless Idylls takes in expansive, extravagantly despondent synth vistas (‘Children Of A Lesser God’, ‘Plant Lilies At My Head’); dubwise love songs (‘More Alone’, ‘Court Of Devotion’) and night-activated, pedal-to-the-floor ghost riders (‘Hardest Day’, ‘Rites Of The Wild’). O’Connor’s deft, unmistakable studio touch further deepens and intensifies these pieces, resulting in a sensual and sepulchral psychedelia unlike anything you’ve heard before.
