JOE’s Song Of The Day #440: Anna’s Anchor ‘Summer Camp’

They're just back from the Czech republic.


This band are just back from the Czech Republic.

Irish emo-indie act Anna’s Anchor have released the second track in their double single hit. Following on from ‘You Are A Lighthouse’
earlier this month, new track ‘Summer Camp’ also has an accompanying video which can be seen here.

Serving as a bridge between debut LP ‘Nautical Miles’ and the future follow-up, Marty Ryan, the man behind the project, comments on
the song: “It bridges the gap where I’ve come from with the debut album, and the direction I’m trying to send Anna’s Anchor towards as I finish writing the second album.

He added: “Summer Camp is largely different from anything I’ve done before in the sense that it has much more of a pop edge to it, hookier chorus but on top of this, much more noodlier guitars with a couple of different time signatures. It’s quite an upbeat, fun summer song but as with anything Anna’s Anchor related, there are sad disguised lyrics in there.

“It is about realising as the mid-twenties set in, the fun summer times rarely happen, but when they do, you really have to make the most of it, as life will really get you down otherwise” he concluded.

Having recently completed a run of Irish dates supporting Ducking Punches, Anna’s Anchor have been freshly
announced as playing the renowned Fest in Gainesville this October, alongside several already announced European
