Comprised of childhood friends Charlie Tait and John Cleworth, Cambio Sun are forging their own path – a fusion of the acoustic and electronic. What started as the brainchild of Tait has grown to become one of the most exciting new bands and a perfect production partnership.
The band recently shared new track “This Is Beginning”, the follow-up to the majestic Maiden Voyage. It’s a typically off-kilter and unpredictable track from the duo. Unafraid of experimenting, what begins as a dark and contemplative builds to a sublime crescendo.
They will headline London’s Servant Jazz Quarters on 27 September.
What’s Cambio Sun’s “origin story”, how did you meet?
Charlie - I was working as a booker for the Randwick Racecourse and John was in debt to me over $3,000. I had to go over to his place to collect and I found him playing drums. 4 hours later we cleared the debt.
How did moving from Sydney to London shape your sound?
C - We used to write ambient muzak for petrol stations and urinals back in Oz, and since moving here we realised there wasn't much of a market for it over here so we decided as a business prospect to try our hand at alternative rock music
How do Sydney and London’s music scenes differ?
John - They're both on opposite sides of the world
You’ve released instrumental work under the name Lusinth, lyrics aside, do you approach this work differently from your Cambio Sun output?
C - Yes, we do

How’s your debut LP shaping up?
