Summer Camp - Young

- 19 August 2010
After doing the fashionable thing and releasing a record incognito last year, London duo Summer Camp came out as melodic crooner Jeremy Warmsley and pop-cult writer Elizabeth Sankey.
Their debut mini-album, Young, sounds like a nostalgic slice of sun-warped vinyl: all hazy electro, woozy harmonies and shimmering John Hughes reference points – and there’s vintage soul, rock ‘n’ roll and classic indie in there too. Bananarama, The Psychedelic Furs, The Cocteaus and the Shangri-Las are all discernable.
From the nagging melancholy of ‘Ghost Train’ to the swooning laser-pop of ‘Round the Moon’, Summer Camp soundtrack holiday crushes, fairground rides and endless nights.
