Summer Camp

Summer Camp

 London, England, GBR

Described by Music Week magazine as "One of the most talked about bands of the year" Summer Camp are Elizabeth Sankey and Jeremy Warmsley, a duo from London making waves the world over with their "charming, breezy, lo-fi pop" (Guardian).


Started almost by accident as a clandestine musical project by Elizabeth Sankey and Jeremy Warmsley (indeed, their first ever track was a haunting, fuzzed out take on The Flamingos’ “I Only Have Eyes For You”), Summer Camp now create the kind of utterly mesmeric, sepia-toned dream pop which seems predestined to form the perfect soundtrack to first kisses and adolescent crushes; romance and yearning. The melancholic “Ghost Train”, for instance, sounds not unlike girl groups from the 60’s wrapped in a warm blanket of lo-fi gauze and dusted lightly with pure pop sugar. Described by Pitchfork as a 'Bouncy and effervescent slice of indie pop, whimsical and nostalgic and catchy', this song was released in the UK and Europe in April 2010 to much critical acclaim, followed by a 6 track EP in October, both out on Moshi Moshi Records. The duo played all the major UK festivals in the summer of 2010, leading into a full headline tour of the country in the Autumn, before finally settling down to concentrate on penning their debut record, scheduled for release in April 2011.
