Camp Cope’s brand new third LP Running with the Hurricane breathes growth for the trio, both personally and professionally, and sees the band older, wiser, and more at peace with the world. Running with the Hurricane reflects on faltered romances, secret crushes and vibrating with the confidence that makes you feel like you’re on fire. It’s about taking comfort in knowing who you are, feeling yourself and returning, always, to the city of Melbourne. If Camp Cope’s self-titled debut (2016) was the spark, and How to Socialise & Make Friends (2018) was the fire, Running with the Hurricane is Camp Cope in the calm after the storm.
The band have two shows coming up this summer in Australia, as well as Pitchfork Fest in Chicago in July with future US dates TBA.
...the music is gentler and twangier, exploring heartbreak, depression, jealousy, and growth. It’s still propelled by corporeal feelings of perseverance and self-determined triumph that are synonymous with Camp Cope —still a balm for anyone who’s been underestimated or undermined. - Pitchfork
