Following a Cardigans’ international breakthrough in 1997, vocalist Nina Persson released an experimental part task by using Atomic Swing’s Niclas Frisk. The duo called itself A Camp and quickly documented some songs, however the task was briefly shelved when Persson came back to the street to get the Cardigans’ 4th recording, Gran Turismo. By 2000, Persson experienced moved to NEW YORK with her husband to be, Shudder to Think’s Nathan Larson. However, A Camp resumed routine, with Larson becoming a member of the lineup and Sparklehorse’s Tag Linkous climbing aboard as maker. That Fall, A Camp decamped to upstate NY to record their self-titled debut recording. Having previously performed electric guitar with Shudder to believe, Larson opted to take care of the bass rather, leaving regular electric guitar responsibilities to Frisk. The trio’s quirky, special sound became very popular in Sweden, where in fact the album gained four Swedish Grammys. A Camp after that took another expanded break, this time around waiting up to five years before reconvening in 2007 to record another album. Motivated by David Bowie and 1960s female groupings, Colonia was completed within a season and slated for discharge in early 2009.
