Summer Camp get on the Ghost Train

Press release:

Started almost by accident as a clandestine musical project by Elizabeth Sankey and Jeremy Warmsley (indeed, their first ever track was a haunting, fuzzed out take on The Flamingos’ "I Only Have Eyes For You"), Summer Camp now create the kind of utterly mesmeric, sepia-toned dream pop which seems predestined to form the perfect soundtrack to first kisses and adolescent crushes; romance and yearning. The melancholic “Ghost Train”, for instance, sounds not unlike girl groups from the 60’s wrapped in a warm blanket of lo-fi gauze and dusted lightly with pure pop sugar, while the cinematic “Montgomery Avenue 1984”, like a snippet from a classic film, manages to evoke an entire universe of love and longing in its brief running time. This single signals the arrival of a new and most unusual talent in the pop firmament, while also serving as an utterly spellbinding introduction to the slanted and enchanted world of Summer Camp.
