Summer Camp - Better Off Without You

Summer Camp are back with another new song and nothing says 80s film soundtrack more than 'Better Off Without You'. Elizabeth Sankey sings 'Stop calling me/You gotta stop calling' like a fiesty independent teenage girl with deep rooted problems, the bitchy side of Claire Standish alongside the devil may care attitude of Veronica Sawyer. Her sweet sickly vocals disguise the harsh nature of the lyrics, which portray the height of pessimism about relationships and love. 'Better Off Without You' is an empowering anthem that is reminiscent of Cyndi Lauper's 'Girls Just Wanna Have Fun' in that they both encourage life without men getting in the way. Elizabeth Sankey and Jeremy Warmsley keep outdoing themselves and if this is similar to the material that will be on the album, we can expect one of the best records this year.
