[Listen] Stream Summer Camp's Groovy Jam "Fresh"

Wow, it's been a long time since I've heard the name Summer Camp. Back in 2011, the band released their fantastic debut album Welcome to Condale. They followed that up with the Always EP last year, but have flown rather under the radar since. Well, Jeremy Warmsley and Elizabeth Sankey are back with new material and a soon-to-be-released sophomore album. Aiming to brighten your already bright summer days, the duo have offered up "Fresh." The song is incredibly infectious, ushering forwards with groovy layered basslines and synths. Paired with Sankey's charming yet heartbroken vocals, it's hard to deny how great this song is. Add this one to your summer playlist. Stream it below alongside its hilarious lyric video.

Summer Camp's self-titled sophomore album is out on September 9th.

[Watch] Summer Camp - "Always" (Official Video)

How do you make murder come across as cute and lovey-dovey? Summer Camp will show you in their new video for the catchy synth-heavy single "Always." Director Oliver Evans puts Jeremy Warmsley and Elizabeth Sankey into the roles of fugitive murderers, who play mini-golf and ride the carousel while their victim is asphyxiating in a van. The camcorder-filmed video is somehow perfectly fitting for the Britpop duo's fantastic single. Watch it above.

As well as releasing the new video, the band has put up a French version of the song on their SoundCloud, which you can stream below.

[Listen] Summer Camp - "Always"

After we got to enjoy "Life" a few weeks ago from the London duo Summer Camp, they've now offered up the title track of their forthcoming EP, Always. The EP itself isn't set to drop until the 19th of July via Moshi Moshi so get your Summer Camp fill below nearly 2 months prior to the release. Maybe we'll be lucky enough to hear some more of it before it drops. Maybe...

[Watch] Summer Camp - "Losing My Mind" (Official Video)

On March 19th, Summer Camp is set to release the 7" single of their track "Losing My Mind," one of many fantastic tracks from their debut LP Welcome to Condale. The video is extremely simple in that it shows band members Jeremy Warmsley and Elizabeth Sankey getting their school photos taken, but, for anyone who has had to go through the trauma that is school photos, the visuals in this video will be very familiar. Particularly, as Michael Roffman of CoS points out, the dreadful smoky background that photographers in the '80s and '90s thought was cutting edge and professional makes a comeback in this nostalgic video. Check it out above.
