Summer Camp, the indie pop duo made up of married couple Jeremy Warmsley and Elizabeth Sankey, have returned with their new song ‘The Ugly Truth’.
The band, who have released three full length records to date, last shared new music in the shape of their 2015 effort, Bad Love, through Moshi Moshi records. Since then, both Warmsley and Sankey have been busy working on their own side projects, until now that is.
Back together in the studio, Summer Camp has been birthed in collaboration with Sankey’s cinematic project, Romantic Comedy, a documentary that was handed a premiere screening at the high profile film festival SXSW. “A documentary that goes beneath the surface of our favourite films, seeking to better understand the way we view love, relationships and romance,” the official synopsis reads. “From ‘It Happened One Night’ to ‘Runaway Bride’, from clumsy meet cutes to rain-soaked declarations of love, these films reflect our experiences but are often just as problematic as they are comforting.”
The description continues: “They’re hugely successful and deeply loved by many, but—being frequently dismissed as guilty pleasures—they have often avoided critical analysis. Helped by a diverse chorus of critics, actors and filmmakers, and with original songs by her band Summer Camp, director Elizabeth Sankey embarks on a journey of investigation and self-discovery.”
