With two EPs in their catalog so far, The Band CAMINO have established a pop-rock sound that balances funky guitar riffs with wavy melodies. But for their latest release, the Nashville-based trio put electric guitar at the forefront -- and let it rip.
The result was a roaring track called "Daphne Blue," which introduces the group's most raw sound yet, but with the same kind of anthemic feel that their '80s-inspired rock music has always had. Though it may be the most shred-heavy song in their repertoire, "Daphne Blue" is a tune the guys have been eager to make for a while.
"Spencer [Stewart, one of the band's members] had been playing that main guitar part for years -- it had essentially become our designated soundcheck riff," the band explains. "We’d been wanting to write a 'punch you in the face' guitar-driven rock song for a while and one day our manager heard Spence playing the riff at a rehearsal and was like 'Wait a minute... What is that? Why haven’t you guys written a song around this?' and two days later we sat down and wrote 'Daphne Blue.'"
