Summer Camp are Jeremy Warmsley and Elizabeth Sankey - the “head and heart” of the band respectively, as they describe themselves - and Summer Camp is the follow up to their debut Welcome To Condale, whose twelve tracks gave autumn 2011 a welcome shot of sunshine with its gorgeous collection of lushly melodic pop songs woven around a central narrative of an imaginary suburb deep in the heart of America, a cinematic microverse of teenage lovers and loners, high school freaks and geeks.
With their finest set of songs yet in the bag, they headed into the studio with legendary producer Stephen Street (The Smiths, Blur). The result is an eleven-track marvel, cherry-picking the best bits of Welcome To Condale and Always , and weaving them into a cohesive whole that is very much the sound of Summer Camp in 2013, a confident, fully-realised body of work that befits the cliche ‘all killer, no filler’. “This album is a statement of intent: this is us, take it or leave it...” says Jeremy. “... Please take it,” Elizabeth adds.
The limited edition 12" vinyl includes a copy of the album on CD.
