Melbourne indie-punk trio CAMP COPE’s stunning debut album has landed at #36 on the ARIA Albums Chart and #9 on the Australian Albums Chart this week, in a feat unprecedented by a band who had their first rehearsal together a mere 11 months ago.

CAMP COPE were born in a backyard over home job tattoos, formed to add body and beat to singer Georgia Maq’s solo work. The eight tracks on CAMP COPE’s debut, including the heartbreaking ‘Lost: Season One’ and the celebrated lead single ‘Jet Fuel Can’t Melt Steel Beams’, discuss real life working shifts in a hospital, living in rundown share houses in Footscray and what it’s like to be a woman in the world. Their soulful, indie-punk played under Maq’s robust voice have made it okay to enjoy feeling angst again.

Camp Cope’s brilliant debut album is out now through Poison City Records
