Camp Cope have released a cover of Sam Fender‘s hit Seventeen Going Under. For the first time since 2016, the band returned to ABC Sydney studios to record the cover.
“When I first heard this song it really resonated with me, growing up and living still in Western Sydney, because this is a song that’s about growing up poor and then wanting to experience life as a child but then that being your home life,” explains bassist Kelly-Dawn Hellmrich. “So kind of wanting to go out and experience the world but then the world being a very hard place to navigate as well. And then when I brought it to the band, I knew that they could relate to it in a lot of ways too because it touches on themes about toxic masculinity and boys’ clubs which we’ve done before with our own music.”
