Who are they?
They’ve been described as having an angst-ridden sound, sitting somewhere between confessional folk-punk and lo-fi pop-punk. Melbourne trio Camp Cope broke into the Australian mainstream in 2018 with their top ten-charting sophomore album How to Socialise & Make Friends. Following their first headlining American tour they returned in early 2022 to release their third LP, ‘Running with the Hurricane.’
