Melbourne trio Camp Cope are releasing their first-ever music video today for the title track of their celebrated new album Running with the Hurricane, out now on Run For Cover Records.
The video was directed by James J. Robinson (who has previously teamed up with Camp Cope lead singer Georgia Maq for an epic photo shoot) and Rachael Morrow. Shot in Australia on Wurundjeri land, Camp Cope say of the video, “It’s like a moment in time for us as a band. We were getting ready to fly out to the US for our first international tour since the pandemic started. Kelly is six months pregnant in it and keeps rocking out. Jenny, who has started playing guitar live with us graciously said yes to being in it. We really wanted to capture the energy of the song, and that sometimes the only way out is up. And who doesn’t like to get dressed up and do funny things with leaf blowers all day?”
The video’s directors say of the collaboration, “We love Camp Cope because sonically they can pull you out of a spiral of self-doubt, using both vulnerability and power as their weapons. WIth the video, we wanted to translate that to a visual language: walking the fine line between being candid but intentional, empowering but sincere, serious but also very not-serious. We wanted to try and capture even a percentage of the song’s superpower – the reminder that you’re going to be okay, even though it feels like the world’s collapsing around you.”
