MOSHI MOSHI RECORDS PREPARE FOR RELEASE OF
SUMMER CAMP’S YOUNG EP
AVALIABLE DIGITALLY SEPTEMBER 6TH AND IN STORES THIS NOVEMBER
FULL-LENGTH DEBUT COMING SPRING 2011
Moshi Moshi Records proudly announce the September 6th release of Summer Camp’s Young EP. The EP marks the UK duo’s North American debut, and the latest release for the storied UK indie label on this side of the Atlantic. It also serves as a precursor to their forthcoming full-length debut, due out in Spring 2010.
Summer Camp started almost accidentally as a clandestine musical project by the London based duo Elizabeth Sankey and Jeremy Warmsley. Yet the strength of their hazy nostalgic take on John Hughes teen-dream inspired pop was not an easily confined secret, even if their identities and country of origin originally were. Their early single “Ghost Train” drew notice from tastemakers like Gorilla Vs. Bear, who became an early champion of the group whose bio was short on details and stocked with a few red herrings about summer camp in Sweden.
A year on, and with a UK 7″ release and some touring under their belt, The BBC writes that Summer Camp’s Young EP “comes crashing on, bristling with gems from a bygone era where the permanence of relationship drama has been sieved out.” The EP serves as a fitting introduction to a group with enough “pop juice on display to suggest that this is just the beginning.” This fall and winter sees the duo touring Europe and putting finishing touches on their full-length debut, due out some time in Spring 2011. Next year they plan to tour North America in support of its release.
