Centerpoint Studio Thailand สุขุมวิท 105 (ซ.ลาซาล)
WITH FEATURING BANDS:
WISUT PONNIMIT x IKUKO HARADA (CLAMMBON)
AND CHLADNI CHANDI
The story of this project is quite a charmed one. Mid-2011, SUPERSWEET and Thailand’s top fashion house Sretsis decided to elope and collaborate on a Live Exhibition, the sisters suggested London-based Summer Camp as the headliners. We soon realised the band are hardly strangers, it’s Jeremy Warmsley – the solo artist we often write about – and his friend Elizabeth Sankey.
All the songs on Welcome to Condale (produced by Pulp’s bass player Steve Mackey), their one and only album to date is structured around fictional characters in a semi-fictional West Coast town, Condale. The storyline? 80s Prom nights, heartaches, vintage romance and all the things you love about John Hughes films. Their music is the perfect balance of delicious sunny pop mashed with chillwave. It does have that retro appeal yet somehow modern and totally relevant – not just in the timing sense but to SUPERSWEET and Sretsis personally. In other words, Summer Camp are that missing link where random reality and fantastical dream collide.
