Camp Cope will follow up their world-beating 2018 album How To Socialise & Make Friends with a new album called Running With The Hurricane on March 25. The announcement follows recent single “Blue” and comes with the revelation of the title track.
“Running With The Hurricane” takes its name from a song by Redgum, the Austrlian political folk band that featured Georgia Maq’s father. It’s not the first time Maq has drawn strength from the memory of her father, but this time she wields it with determination to power through the down and out feelings and situations she ends up in. “Running With The Hurricane” fleshes out Camp Cope’s sound with the addition of piano and immaculate harmonies, which add extra luminosity to Maq’s unmistakable growl, flanking her as she makes proclamations like “look out boys I’m on fire and I’m not going out.” It’s a real barroom romp – especially when Maq yelps “the only way out is up!” – and shows that Camp Cope will be back with just as ferocity and poise as ever with their new album.
