Listen: Summer Camp -“Fresh”

18 Jul

Summer Camp Fresh

Kick off your shoes, dip your toes in the paddling pool, catch that dribble of ice cream before it drips off your Mr Whippy cone and onto your legs, sit back and take it all in. For, if the bright sunshine and heat didn’t tell you, Summer Camp are back with a super-groovy and gloriously nostalgic piece of disco-funk-pop to leave you in no doubt at all, summer is here, and it sounds amazing.

A heady mix of strings, synths, full on groovable guitar solos (both short and long) and a bassline that funks along underneath it all, “Fresh” is a flake of happiness in a sunshine ice-cream. Quite brilliantly, Elizabeth manages to give us both Pulp and Sophie Ellis Bextor reference points in the blink of a chorus. “Do you remember the first time?” she sings (Pulp, obviously) while layered underneath is a very dance floor-Bextor style “Do you? Do you?”.

The whole track is excellent and while the duo reminisce on first loves and heartbreak, we are given a warm trip down our own memory lane to playing out in the sun, footloose and fancy free, enjoying the balmy conditions without a care in the world. Glorious.

“Fresh” is the first full track we’ve heard from the band’s new album, due out in September, and the excite-o-meter has just been ramped up to 11. Stick on your shades, grab an ice-cream and enjoy the groove.

Summer Camp’s eponymous sophomore album is due out 9 September and is available for pre-order from iTunes now.
