Action Camp / Bio

Action Camp is a duo based in Pittsburgh, PA whose sound blends elements of doom pop, electro, surf, and art rock. Members Maura Jacob and Bengt Alexsander combine found sound, drum loops, synths, low-tuned guitars, and Jacob’s classically-trained vocals to create music that can alternate between eerily gentle to sweeping and ferocious. This layering of the organic with the synthetic “creates a distinct sound that takes the best of all these worlds and boils it down into one cohesive unit... goodness that’s silent, murky and ready to explode” (Dayton City Paper). They draw inspiration from folklore, religion, and historical events, with their next release, a full-length album titled PA, giving special attention to disasters in Pennsylvania’s history. The duo is poised to release PA on March 28, 2014 and will tour throughout the spring and summer to promote their new work. The lead off single, “You Don’t Even Know My Name” is available to purchase through most major online distributors.
