Review – “It’s Whatever” – Camp Girls

reviewed by Laura Stanley

Camp Girls’ It’s Whatever is pop-punk for those who put patches over the holes in their jeans. It’s music for the tough kids who feel a lot and are trying to get their lives together (hence the patches) but are finding it hard.

Opener “Angry Song” is an expulsion of frustration and a powerful display of independence. With each cry of “You’re not my friend anymore,” toxicity is expunged. Things are less explicit though on the hazy “Rift” –  there’s something amiss but it’s not entirely clear what. It’s a hairline fracture.

On “Elusive,” Camp Girls admit that they don’t want to be totally alone, as counsellor Becca admits, “I hate it but the truth is don’t wanna do this without you.” Likewise on the distortion-heavy closer “Sync Up With You.” This track is an ode to best-friendship and is dedicated to that person that you can do nothing with and you like so much you that you think getting your period at the same time would be pretty cool.

Also the EP is sold for $4.20. Nice.
