Summer Camp (aka Jeremy Warmsley and Elizabeth Sankey) catch up with Lauren Laverne.

Featured in BBC Music Clips


Summer Camp are an indie pop duo formed in October 2009 by married couple multi-instrumentalist Jeremy Warmsley and vocalist Elizabeth Sankey. They are currently signed to the Moshi Moshi label on which they have released both their debut EP 'Young EP' in 2010, and first full length album 'Welcome to Condale' in 2011, to mainly positive press.

Summer Camp's musical style has been described as "21st-century alt.pop", but also draws influence from 60s girl group and 80s synthpop. The lyrics, written by Sankey, are often quite dark and deal with failed relationships, conflicts and teenage obsessions. Along with the band's artwork and music videos they also draw heavily from American culture from the 1960s-1980s.

    Duo’s debut is a wryly appealing turning point in the art of romanticised retrospection.

    A delicately recorded and deliberately shambling debut.
