This is a record with so much swagger, poise and confidence it could have been recorded by a band twice their age.

The 405

As we knew it would be, this is an incredible second run at crafting an LP - they've doled out enough of the same that it doesn't sound like a completely different artist, but there's plenty of experimentation that you'll be surprised at regular intervals. 


Apart from a few moments of brief departure in sound, for the most part you get what you'd expect from Summer Camp. But hey, why change it when it's so damn good?

The Line of Best Fit

Throughout Summer Camp, songs sparkle thanks largely to Sankey’s vocals, but tend to fade into one another when unnecessary repetition takes hold.

Drowned in Sound

Sadly, far too many of these songs are drained of the charm provided by the sense of artifice which ironically made their early songs feel all the more sincere.
