Summer Camp

Summer Camp loves the 80’s. They really love it. Like, make it hand-made cards and mix tapes kind of love. From their unadulterated adoration for its synth-laden sounds, curly-haired protagonists, and the hazy SoCal sunshine quality of its movies. The video for “Round the Moon” unfolds as a kind of mini John Hughes flick, all coming-of-age teenage angst, romance, and tears. Which is to say it’s all very close to the heart of the band’s music, which has revels in the retro power of its distortion smothered boy/girl vocals with slight innuendoes towards the forlorn urban decay of Joy Division. Summer Camp’s debut EP Young is out early next month on Moshi Moshi. We suggest you grab a copy.
