Camp Cope’s Georgia Maq unveils surprise record, ‘Pleaser’

It’s not what you’d expect from the indie rocker.

Camp Cope vocalist Georgia McDonald (also known as Georgia Maq) has dropped a surprise eight-track album titled Pleaser. It’s Maq’s first solo album released outside of the Melbourne indie rock trio.

Pleaser, according to Maq, is a “love album” that clearly steps away from Camp Cope’s acclaimed alt-rock stylings. Containing strong pop and electronic elements, Maq said she spent more time recording and experimenting with the tracks compared to that of Camp Cope.

“I think the pressure of working with other people drove me to finish the songs, which I hated but also loved because it’s nice to be challenged,” she said in a statement.

“I think [Pleaser’s] main theme is love, obviously, all kinds of love. Love that you walked away from so you could love yourself, uncredited love, forgiving love, love with no point to it.”
