Most recently captured in the music video for ‘Sing Your Heart Out‘, Georgia Maq, Sarah Thompson and Kelly-Dawn Helmrich continue to leave audiences captivated and impressed, with live show reviews of their shows across Meanjin / Brisbane’s Tivoli, Eora / Sydney’s Enmore Theatre, Naarm / Melbourne’s Forum over May and later in lutruwita / Tasmania at the Royal Oak in kanamaluka / Launceston and Repuclic Bar in nipaluna / Hobart; boasting “a masterful set” and “The fact that Camp Cope have remained the same at their core means their fans have stayed loyal”; “It’s hard to believe Camp Cope have only been together for little over half a decade.”
Arriving in March to a steady stream of global acclaim, tastemakers locally and abroad have each revelled in Running With The Hurricane’s empowering embrace of new sonic and lyrical ground, including Upset Magazine’s #12 Album of the Year: “Secure in where they stand, it’s heart and soul that shine through – Camp Cope comfortable in their own sonic skin, pushing outwards while looking inwards.”
Camp Cope have also been nominated for Best Group at the upcoming Music VIC Awards and long-listed for the Australian Music Prize, who lauded their latest LP as “Camp Cope’s most complex and accomplished record yet. It’s somehow both raw and polished, with layered vocals and a fuller sound than their previous offerings. Lyrically, still as powerful as ever.”
Throughout Running With The Hurricane’s ten tracks, Camp Cope trade searing vocals and fierce riffs for pianos, multi-instruments, harmonies and more breathing new growth for the trio personally and professionally – older, wiser, and more at peace with the world. Following their critically acclaimed album How to Socialise & Make Friends (2018), Running With The Hurricane reflects faltered romances and secret crushes, vibrating with assured confidence. If Camp Cope‘s self-titled debut (2016) was the spark, and How to Socialise & Make Friends was the fire, Running With The Hurricane is Camp Cope in the calm after the storm.
