Action Camp: Better Made Fast EP

Better Made Fast EP Cover Art

Better Made Fast is the latest EP from Pittsburgh duo Action Camp, aka Maura Jacob and Bengt Alexsander. Action Camp incorporate elements from garage rock, dreampop and electropop into a sound that is heavy yet intimate, with distinct echos of surf. The EP features three new tracks plus four remixes of those tracks by other Pittsburgh artists. The tracks soar with Jacob's distinctive vocals, that meld atmospheric textures with the driving instrumentals. Everything I have heard from Action Camp is strong, but with only 4 tracks released in the last two years, one must wonder what the future will hold for this duo. Stream and buy Better Made Fast at the link below.
