Summer Camp - Outside
Premiere from Always EP
Summer Camp are an unstoppable force. On the heels of their first full length, a month later they’re already working on a respectable 20minish EP, five tracks full of music heading in a very different direction.
The first two tracks to surface from the EP sounded more or less like the Summer Camp I’ve come to love, including Always (with the awesome hostage n cake eating music video) and Life, maybe the home run single.
Outside is the last track on Always, and it seems like its the culmination of a building momentum across this little EP, gettin to a frantic pop dance beat. This one sounds like such a departure from the slow scratchy tracks of three years past, and I don’t say that with any negative connotations.
It reminds me of old Of Montreal at their best circa Satanic Panic in the Attic or The Sunlandic Twins.
Honestly I think this EP is an excellent mixture of the new and old sound, and as long as they don’t lose their roots completely, I’m down for speeding up the rhythm.
