How to Socialise & Make Friends

Run For Cover

Mar 05, 2018 Web Exclusive Bookmark and Share

Camp Cope’s second album, How to Socialise & Make Friends, is a sweeping, emotional rollercoaster. The Melbourne trio’s storytelling continues to be stunning and humbled, lead-singer Georgia McDonald’s anxiety so blatant and palpable it’s hard to differentiate their lyrics from diary entries.

Though Camp Cope’s energy is clearly restrained throughout, McDonald’s vitality remains intact, their lyrics as swelling and poignant as ever. It’s an album bleeding sadness and regret, heavily loaded with self-observation and criticisms. Whether it’s the melancholic confessions of “UFO Lighter” or the sincere goodbye to McDonald’s father on “I’ve Got You,” Camp Cope have mastered their breed of outsider indie-rock.

To say that this album is an incredibly intimate listen would be an understatement, safely compared to Mount Eerie’s A Crow Looked at Me. Filled with crippling self-realizations and epiphanies regarding grief and self-renewal, it is truly a special record, heavy and rewarding, like an extremely necessary midnight cry. (

A true friendship is the most beautiful blessing from god which is needed to be treated and nourished like any priceless thing in world. A good friend is someone difficult to find with no expectations and no demands. A true friendship has the quality of different shades with lots of sentiments sometimes they get happy, sometime they get emotional and some time they fight with each other but that doesn’t affects their true friendship.
