Camp Cope Leading The Way With Like A Version “Maps” Cover

Camp Cope Like A Version

In their first year together, Melbournian indie-punks Camp Cope have delivered countless memorable live shows, an incredible self-titled debut album, and now an impressive Like A Version cover of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ Maps.

The cover begins with a beautifully subtle melodic tapestry of steady guitar and drum rhythms. It’s moody and melancholy like the soundtrack to a teenage relationship, complete with vocals to please fans of Gordi and Courtney Barnett. The first chorus takes the track into shoegaze territory with shimmering guitar melodies beneath frontwoman Georgia Maq’s steady performance.

Halfway through the song, steadiness is replaced with passion as the gentle notes morph into Hayley Williams-esque belts. The final choruses showcase a beautiful contrast of soft and sweet against hard and heavy, moving instantaneously from breathy vocals and sparse guitars into near-screeches bursting with emotion.

Camp Cope’s debut album earned them widespread praise, particularly for tracks with such dynamic titles as Done, Flesh & Electricity, and Jet Fuel Can’t Melt Steel Beams
