A warm sea of synths and funky drum machines open Summer Camp’s full-length Welcome to Condale. It’s a charming affair, filled with boy-girl harmonies with a splash of retro charm—made even more anachronistic by the inclusion of 1980s film samples. But under the bubble-gum exterior are two top-shelf musicians elevating teen-pop tropes—such as a Spector girl-group refrain (“Ghost Train”) or playful vocal sparing (“Losing My Mind”)—into thoroughly modern kiss-offs. A dizzyingly sweet ride.
