Summer Camp - Obsessed with this band

Summer Camp are a new pretty anonymous band that have been causing a stir amongst those in the know. They are a boy girl duo who sound a bit like Chairlift but better, there are no pictures of them on their myspace which you can find under the mysteriously named myspace site.

The Guardian say:

They're as slippery as they are seemingly shy, this Summer Camp pair. They fit in or flit in and out of various categories: the new surf-rock of the Drums, the C86-ish indie-pop of Pains of Being Pure at Heart, the girl group revivalism of Vivian Girls ... There are elements in their lush lo-fi moments of chillwave, with some of the crackly intimacy of Perfume Genius. "If Washed Out offer the comedown from the utopian gauzy beach party," wrote one blogger, "then Summer Camp are the band who played the prom the night before, peppier than their morning-after bedfellows."

They love synth pop and so do I so I'll be keeping a close eye on their developments, I suggest you do too. Moshi Moshi will be releasing their debut single in March.
