Summer Camp #8 - Two Chords

Facebook / wearesummercamp.com

I'm feeling increasingly poorly today, fingers crossed a dose of the dreaded man-flu is not around the corner. I blame running twelve miles in rain - something that can never be considered a clever idea.

What better then, than a track by the (seemingly) always happy Summer Camp to brighten my mood (although it does come backed with a video which sees the end of the world delivered by two bickering newsreaders - thankfully it's more amusing than life threatening and even comes with an (almost) happy ending)...

It's a real cracker of a track too - the London based duo's latest single "Two Chords", one of the highlights from their self-titled second LP (released last month via Moshi Moshi with the single following on November 18th). It's the most expansive and lengthy track from Summer Camp to date and is guaranteed to immediately hook you in with a jaunty, addictive melody propelled by precise beats and shimmering keys which are illuminated by Elizabeth's ever sweet vocals. It also features some of their most endearing, intimate lyrics too and the result is sure nothing short of gorgeous.

Summer Camp head off on an extensive European tour next month and you can find a date near you here.
