Summer Camp have opened up about how scary it is making an album that is more personal to them.

The band are married couple Jeremy Warmsley and Elizabeth Sankey and for their second album they have written about their relationship.

Elizabeth explained: "We went to see the LCD Soundsystem film and it made us realise something; we're never going to be like David Bowie and have some concept that we create and live inside for two years.

"The alternative, like James Murphy from LCD Soundsystem, is to create something authentic and be yourself. It then seemed really strange that we weren't talking about being married.

"It's a huge part of who we are as people, but not the band. On the first album we weren't writing about relationships, so it wasn't relevant. Now we want to face up to reality a bit more though, it becomes relevant to talk about it."

Asked why it was so much more nerve-racking to write personal lyrics, Jeremy said: "Because if people reject the music, it feels like it's you, the person, being rejected."

:: Summer Camp begin a UK tour on November 17. For more information, go to www.wearesummercamp.com.
