Introducing CAMDEN PLACE And Their ‘Atmospheric, Evocative, Shimmering, Heartfelt Electronica’

Camden Place – Will I make it to Springtime

“Will I make it to Springtime” deals with our sense of mortality, whether as an individual facing death or as a wider community almost driven demented by anxiety.

Camden Place – Will I make it to Springtime

“Will I Make it to Springtime” is an optimistic song, very appropriate for the pandemic and comforting us in a period of great emotional stress.
