UK pop duo, Summer Camp has returned with their energetic new EP, Always, out July 10th via Apricot Recording Company/Moshi Moshi. 80’s electro at its core, title track, “Always” maintains a purely fun, uptempo beat to match the optimistic lyrics: “We’ll always be together! We’ll always be together!” By default, the new wave, synth single is a dance floor anthem best kept under neon lights for full effect.
Despite an ability to conserve their creative consistency, this latest work–following Camp’s 2010 EP, Young–lifts out of the drab emotionality so tangible in their former indie hits like, “Ghost Train,” and “Better Off Without You.” Adding a little more pop into their indie equation, the twosome, which includes Jeremy Warmsley and vocalist Elizabeth Sankey, have evolved into a one stop shop for animated trifecta of Depeche Mode-esque synth, erratic bass, and twirling vocal layers. It’s still a little soon to make the commitment, but it seems we will always love Summer Camp!
