“Camp Cope have always been loud, fearless, and sincere but on their tender third album, they’re more confessional than confrontational”

triple j (Album Spotlight)

“As receptive and unflinching as ever”

The New York Times

“Fearless, minimalist punk… But beyond the bombast, in the band’s quieter moments, singer Georgia Maq’s honest introspection feels just as powerful”


“Shifting away from the gnawing, emo-inflected power-pop of their first two albums, Camp Cope ask: Can softness be as invigorating as fury?”

Pitchfork (7.8/10)

“Maq’s singing, always powerful, is more beautiful than it has ever been before… a wonderful return, and well worth the four year wait”

NARC (5/5)

“It’s heart and soul that shines through… They’ve never been better”

Upset (5/5)

“Distinct, crooning and softly beautiful”

DIY Mag (4/5)

“In spite of its softness, this is music that knows its own power yet wields it graciously, both sonically and lyrically”

Kerrang! (4/5)

“An intimate collection of tender-hearted indie rock”

Rolling Stone (3.5/5)

“Running With the Hurricane is golden and soulful, tender and huge-hearted”

The Guardian

“If there’s a Morrissey-esque lilt in Maq’s vocals, there’s also an echo of his famous plea, that it “takes guts to be gentle and kind”, in the album’s spirit”

Sydney Morning Herald

“Running With the Hurricane offers enticing glimpses of a more settled band, one teeming with soft hope and resolute joy”

Under The Radar

“An early contender for album of the year”

Camp Cope today announce their latest stream of tour dates, taking to Aotearoa / New Zealand  this January 2023. Tickets are on sale now, BUY HERE.

In the wake of their recent US tour, including support slots with Lucy Dacus, Running With The Hurricane, Camp Cope‘s third LP will see the group return to Tāmaki Makaurau / Auckland and Te Whanganui-a-Tara / Wellington in late January with support acts to be announced. As one of so-called Australia’s most embraced performers, Camp Cope’s live show was reshaped earlier this year, joined by award-winning multi-instrumentalist Jennifer Aslett (Julia Jacklin,  Stella Donnelly, San Cisco) to deliver a new string of instrumentation, praised as “honest, brave and dedicated.”

Most recently captured in the music video for  ‘Sing Your Heart Out‘, Georgia Maq, Sarah Thompson and Kelly-Dawn Helmrich continue to leave audiences captivated and impressed, with live show reviews of their shows across Meanjin / Brisbane’s Tivoli, Eora / Sydney’s Enmore Theatre, Naarm / Melbourne’s Forum over May and later in lutruwita / Tasmania at the Royal Oak in kanamaluka / Launceston and Repuclic Bar in nipaluna / Hobart; boasting “a masterful set” and “The fact that Camp Cope have remained the same at their core means their fans have stayed loyal”;“It’s hard to believe Camp Cope have only been together for little over half a decade.”

Arriving in March to a steady stream of global acclaim, tastemakers locally and abroad have each revelled in Running With The Hurricane’s  empowering embrace of new sonic and lyrical ground, including Upset Magazine’s #12 Album of the Year: “Secure in where they stand, it’s heart and soul that shine through – Camp Cope comfortable in their own sonic skin, pushing outwards while looking inwards.”

Camp Cope have also been nominated for Best Group at the upcoming Music VIC Awards and long-listed for the Australian Music Prize, who lauded their latest LP as “Camp Cope’s most complex and accomplished record yet. It’s somehow both raw and polished, with layered vocals and a fuller sound than their previous offerings. Lyrically, still as powerful as ever.” 

Throughout Running With The Hurricane’s ten tracks, Camp Cope trade searing vocals and fierce riffs for pianos, multi-instruments, harmonies and more breathing new growth for the trio personally and professionally – older, wiser, and more at peace with the world. Following their critically acclaimed album How to Socialise & Make Friends   (2018),  Running With The Hurricane reflects faltered romances and secret crushes, vibrating with assured confidence. If Camp Cope‘s self-titled debut (2016) was the spark, and How to Socialise & Make Friends was the fire, Running With The Hurricane is Camp Cope in the calm after the storm.
