Already stirring excitement in Melbourne’s underground music scene, new indie-punk trio Camp Cope have announced their forthcoming debut record is on the way late April via Poison City Records.
Born in a backyard in Melbourne over home job tattoos, the 3-piece featuring Georgia Maq, Kelly-Dawn Hellmrich and Sarah Thompson, came together to add body and beat to Maq’s solo songs.
They discuss real life working shifts in a hospital, living in rundown share houses in Footscray, being in love over long distance and what it’s like to be a woman in the world.
Camp Cope’s soulful, indie-punk played under Maq’s raspy and robust voice have made it okay to enjoy feeling angst again. Recorded and mixed at Holes And Corners Studio by Sam Johnson (The Smith Street Band, The Bennies), the ‘Self Titled‘ debut is set for release this April on LP/CD/Digital via Poison City Records.
