Read Brendan Lukens’ (Modern Baseball) touching note to Camp Cope

CAMP COPE were born in a backyard in Melbourne over home job tattoos in 2015, formed to add body and beat to Georgia Maq’s solo work. The eight tracks on CAMP COPE‘s debut, including the heartbreaking first single ‘Lost: Season One’, 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.
