- Summer Camp - Losing My Mind
Having maintained an aura of anonymity when they first broke onto the indie scene back in 2010, London duo Jeremy Warmsley and Elizabeth Sankey have firmly established themselves as one of the “coolest” bands around. Latest single ‘Losing My Mind’, taken from latest album Welcome To Condaleis a vibrant piece of alt-pop that proves their reputation is more than justified.
From its opening synths this song oozes retro, and the boy/girl split vocals are more than a little reminiscent of classic 80s combos like The Human League or that time Kirsty MacColl teamed up with The Pogues. However, there is a constant, underlying sense of modernity that places this very firmly in the 21stCentury, it’s almost tragic lyrics deceptively hidden amongst a wall of addictive electronics.
While they don’t yet seem to have fully capitalised on the hype that built around their first releases, Summer Camp are without doubt one of the most interesting and downright endearing bands of the moment. ‘Losing My Mind’ is three minutes of battery-powered bliss; catch them now, before everyone else does.
