New music: Summer Camp ‘Welcome to Condale’

I thought this ’80s synth pop craze ran its course. I honestly didn’t want to hear another song. That’s until I heard Summer Camp.

I was sold on these guys — Jeremy Warmsley and Elizabeth Sankey of London — following release of the single I Want You earlier this year. But I was skeptical that the full-album release, Welcome to Condale, would hold up to the strength of that song. I’m happy to say it does. The album is out today.

As noted, the songs have that ’80s sound (think of a John Hughes soundtrack) but there’s an original stamp on them as well. It’s very good.
