Born in a backyard in over home job tattoos, CAMP COPE ? Georgia Maq (vocals, guitar), Kelly-Dawn Hellmrich (bass) and Sarah Thompson (drums) ? have become a force in music since forming in Melbourne in June 2015.
Their newly released sophomore album 'How To Socialise & Make Friends' anchors on the cycles of life, loss and growth through resilience and those moments of finding and being yourself. It celebrates the joys of being an independent unit and knowing who you are without any influence from external factors, and non-romantic love felt towards friends; the women who shape you and women working together to find strength in numbers. It has been praised by triple j (Feature Album), The Independent (4 stars), Vinyl Mag (9.5/10), All Music (4 stars) among others. The Guardian?s co-head music critic Andrew Stafford awarded the album 4 stars, saying, ?For a generation that?s grown up watching vocal talent quests, hearing the unrestrained gusto of McDonald singing these simple, direct songs will be empowering. In 20 years, young women especially will approach her and thank Camp Cope for encouraging them to pick up a guitar and tell their own stories. And so the baton will be passed, and picked up again.?
"Petal, the musical project of Kiley Lotz, doesn't reveal specifics in "Comfort" to determine where she stands, but she makes her disquietude known. Her soft falsetto recognizes that the dissolution of a relationship, the space in which something intimate becomes ill-defined and romance starts to waver, is an idiosyncratic experience every time, for every stranger, friend and loved one. It also happens to be why "Comfort" is so heartbreaking." [Maria Sherman, NPR 'Songs We Love' 9/15/17]
"This record is kind of the apology, the confession and the acceptance of the ways I've felt shame in my life and trying to share it with others,? explains Petal lead singer, Kiley Lotz, of their 2015 album, 'Shame'. The melodically driven, indie rock record draws influence from Death Cab For Cutie and Pedro The Lion. Each song has its own sound but with tight drums and forward vocals, the album is cohesive in a beautifully textured way. Though Petal has stayed true to the sound fans have come to appreciate from the previous released EP, 'Scout', in 2013, this record shows growth with heaviness in both sound and content.
