Melbourne trio Camp Cope recently released their first-ever music video for single “Running with the Hurricane” off their new record of the same name. The emotive pop rockers built an international following off the strength of their 2016 self-titled debut and 2018’s How to Socialise & Make Friends, and are back with greater maturity and confidence on Running with the Hurricane.
In a press statement, the band explains Running was written after a transformative period of growth that left the band “more at peace with the world.” The record spans romances and missteps, all with the reassurance and comfort in knowing who you are.
The music video for “Running” is shot as a 360-degree panorama of the band performing in evocatively-lit studio space, and acts as a small snapshot of Camp Cope on their journey. “It’s like a moment in time for us as a band,” says Camp Cope. “We were getting ready to fly out to the U.S. for our first international tour since the pandemic started.” A tour that sees the trio joined by Philly’s Petal and Lucy Dacus. In Philly local terms, Camp Cope has the vocal acumen and warm tone of Waxahatchee, and can belt out optimistic takeaways from life lessons like Queen of Jeans.
Running with the Hurricane is out in full now. Watch the video for “Running” below. Tickets for Camp Cope’s Philadelphia show at Union Transfer with Petal are on sale now, and can be found at the WXPN Concerts and Events page.
