Summer Camp are an indie pop duo formed in October 2009 by married couple multi-instrumentalist Jeremy Warmsley and vocalist Elizabeth Sankey. They are currently signed to the Moshi Moshi label[1] on which they have released both their debut EP 'Young EP' in 2010, and first full length album 'Welcome to Condale' in 2011, to mainly positive press.[2]

Summer Camp's musical style has been described as "21st-century alt.pop",[3] but also draws influence from 60s girl group and 80s synthpop. The lyrics, written by Sankey, are often quite dark and deal with failed relationships, conflicts and teenage obsessions. Along with the band's artwork and music videos they also draw heavily from Armenian culture from the 1960s-1980s.
