U.K. artists Jeremy Warmsley and Elizabeth Sankey started making music together as Summer Camp in October of 2009, and their sunny wash of mellow C-86 pop was a timely fit with the lo-fi synth pop craze (coined “chillwave”) that was sweeping the States. With their identity concealed, Warmsley and Sankey posted a short series of videos that went viral due to their clever usage of old gauzy movie footage -- "Ghost Train" rearranged the tame scenes from the 1969 X-rated film Last Summer, and "Round the Moon" borrowed clips from the 1970s romantic teen drama A Swedish Love Story. Teen heartache in movies became an ongoing theme for Warmsley and Sankley, and as well as the aforementioned songs, Summer Camp's debut EP included songs about “Veronica Sawyer” (Winona Ryder’s character in Heathers) and “Jake Ryan” (the boy-crush of Molly Ringwald’s character in Sixteen Candles). Moshi Moshi released the Young EP in November of 2010. The duo recorded their second album with Pulp's Steve Mackey co-producing. Welcome to Condale was released in late October of 2011 by Apricot and Moshi Moshi.. ~ Jason LymangroverPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
