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

“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”

National treasures Camp Cope today share their latest music video of Running With The Hurricane LP closing track, ‘Sing Your Heart Out‘, edited by Natalie van den DungenWATCH HERE.

Previously archived in Camp Cope’s US TV debut on CBS Saturday Morning earlier this year, the ‘Sing Your Heart Out visual ties together the song’s core message of love in all its varied forms, originally spawned from an unassuming connection between Camp Cope and Frightened Rabbit. “Anyone who knows me knows how much Frightened Rabbit means to me, I think I hold the title of most FR tattoos on my body (6)” shares vocalist Georgia Maq.

“When Camp Cope first flew to the U.S, I departed the plane and connected to LAX wifi, and in my message requests was a message from someone I didn’t know called Simon Liddell. In the message, he told me that he had shown Scott Camp Cope before he passed and that Scott had a lot of nice things to say about it. I burst into tears on the spot. So when we went to Scotland, I invited Simon and his girlfriend to our show, they came along and we’ve been friends ever since. During tours and then lockdowns Simon would send me bits of music he’d written for me to play with, he sent me a little piano part and it became the first half of Sing Your Heart Out,” she continues.

Simon Liddell, former member of Frightened Rabbit explains, “Sharing music and collaborating remotely was a great way to stay connected with friends during lockdown. I sent Georgia a rough piano sketch which she developed into such a beautiful song – I was thrilled that I could play a small part in this album by one of my favourite bands.”

Amplifying the crescendo in ‘Sing Your Heart Out “there is so much love, so many different types of love”, the music video depicts a myriad of depictions of love across Georgia Maq, Sarah Thompson and Kelly-Dawn Hellmrich’s worlds: Georgia’s enduring fandom of Frightened Rabbit, Thomo’s cat of 18 years Veebs and new kitten Jennifer, and Kelly’s newborn son, of which she recently spoke to InStyle Magazine about the complexities of motherhood, miscarriage, pregnancy on tour and more.

Brought together by their enduring love for each other, the music video threads together Georgia, Thomo and Kelly through their eras as a Camp Cope time capsule with footage lifted from Pitchfork Festival Chicago 2022, their 2018 headline show at the iconic Sydney Opera House, and recent performance at The Forum where they were joined by Courtney Barnett, Angie McMahon, Julia Jacklin, Jacob Diamond and Fred Leone to bring ‘Sing Your Heart Out‘ to life.

In the wake of their recent US tour, including support slots with Lucy Dacus, Running With The Hurricane, Camp Cope’s third LP, arrived in March to a steady stream of global acclaim. Tastemakers locally and abroad each reveling in the group’s empowering embrace of new sonic and lyrical ground, including their recent nomination for the Australian Music Prize, lauded 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 the album’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.
