London based record label, Moshi Moshi have always been one of our favourites. Fluttering between Indie and Pop. Over the years their bands have released some of my music – from Bloc Party, Hot Chip to most recently Metronomy.
Darlings of the label, Summer Camp – a dynamic duo made up of Jeremy Warmsley and Elizabeth Sankey, provided a solid collection of synth grounded, fuzzy alt pop music that often dabbles in the darkest corner with their debut Welcome To Condale last year. Take ‘I Want You’ – full of 80’s style synth stabs and fractured jabs of prog drums creating an alternative ballad.
Fast track a year later and the pair are gearing up to release a EP. The lead track ‘City’ is a slight departure from their usual sound, however Sankey’s piercing emotive voice works perfectly against the hazy, pulsating pursuit of a beat. Enrolling the help of Odd Future affiliated Hal Williams laid back verse suits the grubby pop sound too. Great track.
Always EP is due July 10th.
