Camp Cope material originated as solo works by the lead singer and guitarist Georgia Maq, who has been independently releasing material since 2014. The music can be broadly classified as indie-punk. But it is so much more than that. The lyrics are quirky and real. Each of the songs tell a story, and the way Georgia’s raspy voice sings, each word, no matter how mundane, seems impressively poetic. The bass lines are melodic and compliment Georgia’s voice nicely, the lines seem to serve as a substitute for a lead guitar. The songs aren’t terribly complex but manage to evoke a sense of nostalgia and raw emotion. This album was released last year in Australia to high acclaim but is now (as of September) available in the U.S.A. Great news for all of us here in states.
