Camp Cope

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.”

Camp Cope’s North American tour kicks off in Boston on July 8th.

Camp Cope

Melbourne trio Camp Cope announced a headlining North American tour today in support of their celebrated new album Running with the Hurricane, out now on Run For Cover Records.

Founded in Melbourne over stick-and-poke 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 debut album Camp Cope (2016).

Camp Cope’s 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.

Austin, TX’s Sun June have shared a video for their new single “Reminded,” from the expanded version of their acclaimed record, Somewhere, out tomorrow via Run For Cover and Keeled Scales.

“‘Reminded’ is about being captivated by someone you have a bad history with and wanting to reconcile with past mistakes, despite it being the most unhealthy decision. It’s about gazing narrowly into an old flame… Basically, it’s the sexiest song we’ve ever written,” says Laura Colwell. “The song leans so far into romance that we thought it would be fun to add some sax. Justin got to arrange it all, and then we had local saxophonist David Alvarez (from Medellin Collection, and Hyah!) lay it down.”

The Jacksonville, FL duo is comprised of Rania Woodard, a queer Black woman from Memphis, TN who grew up playing guitar in a Pentecostal church, and Brian Squillace, a North Carolina-born producer. Together they make trippy and dreamy electro-pop that pushes back against the environment it’s conceived in, creating progressive art and eschewing all outside influence in the deep south. The result is intoxicating and wondrous.

“This is a song about meeting someone and trying to be in the present moment even when you know things won’t last, ” Rania explained of the work. “It’s about accepting things as they are with someone you feel like you’ve known before and feeling some sense of nostalgia in that. In some way, it’s also about listening to your intuition and letting things go with the flow and if that means letting go for the time being then that’s what needs to happen.”

Run For Cover’s newest signing LANNDS have released a video for “In The Garden.” The Jacksonville, FL duo is comprised of Rania Woodard, a queer Black woman from Memphis, TN who grew up playing guitar in a Pentecostal church, and Brian Squillace, a North Carolina-born producer. Together they make trippy and dreamy electro-pop that pushes back against the environment it’s conceived in, creating progressive art and eschewing all outside influence in the deep south. The result is intoxicating and wondrous.

The pulsing and urgent “In The Garden” is a perfect introduction to the band that captures raw emotion and embodies their DIY ethos—all writing, recording, artwork, and video content is done by the duo.

“‘In The Garden’ is a take on how I spent a year inside to recenter my awareness and how that made me realize there won’t ever be a right time to do what you want and to just go for it.” says Woodard. “The song is a metaphor for the death and rebirth of our constant daily lives and how we’re just getting by through the ebbs and flows of life.”
