Founded in Melbourne over home job tattoos, Camp Cope – Georgia Maq (songwriter, vocals, piano, acoustic & electric guitar), Kelly-Dawn Hellmrich (lead bass guitar) and Sarah Thompson (drums & percussion) – have been a force since the release of their self-titled debut album in 2016.
They pen songs that play on the most vulnerable minutiae of everyday life, with staggering live shows that make sold out rooms and festival performances to thousands of people feel as intimate as the very first show they played.
Their critically-acclaimed 2nd LP How To Socialise & Make Friends (2018) debuted at #6 on the ARIA Charts with incredible international acclaim including NPR (“Every unpolished moment stuns with turn-of-age earnestness”), New Yorker (“The words, as raw as the band’s nervy energy, spill out as though she’s been holding them in forever”) and The Guardian (“In 20 years, young women especially will approach her and thank Camp Cope for encouraging them to pick up a guitar and tell their own stories”).
Their forthcoming third album, Running with the Hurricane – due for release March 25, 2022 through Poison City Records – features the critically acclaimed singles ‘Blue’ and title track ‘Running with the Hurricane’, and is about what happens after chaos hits; when you’ve walked through the fire and come out stronger, calmer and happier than ever before.
