Get your Camp Cope fix with their epic Tiny Desk performance

NPR’s Tiny Desk concerts have hosted no shortage of brilliant local and international acts, and last week’s feature performance of Melbourne favourites Camp Cope was no exception.

The trio is renowned for calling out sexist bullshit in the music industry, speaking out against abuse, not staying quiet in the face of adversity, and making pretty damn brilliant music on top of it.

During NPR’s Tiny Desk concert, Camp Cope performed three incredible tracks, the chilled out versions providing an intimate look into why they are one of Australia’s most promising  acts.

Camp Cope’s set list began with the aptly titled track, The Opener, which details the exhausting sexist standards for women in the music industry.

The trio’s fusion of punk-tinged chick rock and activist messages are what have set them aside as one of the most talented and socially important groups in the country.

Their performance of The Face of God, a standout track from their debut album, How to Socialise & Make Friends, is a reflective piece of personal introspection that uncovers the aftermath of emotion following sexual violence.

The band finished their set with Keep Growing, an older track that seems to bring the group back full circle.
