Fronted by South African Rapper/Songwriter Cam The Slumberknight (Cameron Donald), London-based Contemporary R&B/Rap band Cameron and the Slumberknights have gone from strength-to-strength since releasing their debut single Pour in early 2020, despite enduring two national lockdowns in their first year as a group. Pour and it’s follow-up – Midnight (Radio Edit – have earned the band over 100,000 streams, as well as acclaim from the likes of BBC Introducing, SOFAR Sounds, Amuse and Earmilk amongst other media.

The band’s new single ‘Old Jacinto’ was mostly recorded in London’s famous Dean Street studios, and also features production from Grammy-winning Sting collaborator Pete Smith. With themes of metamorphosis, youth and adulthood weaved between Cameron’s lamenting flow and the track’s lush pop-soul arrangement, ‘Old Jacinto’ imagines a new world – a new life – in the ruins of another.

‘Old Jacinto’ is available now via all major platforms.
