summer camp

Once upon a time there was a band from Sweden called The Cardigans. It was formed by 5 individuals including vocalist Nina Persson, who possessed this sugary indie-pop voice that captured the heart of many fans throughout the 90's and early 2000's. With her unique vocals and a charming, vintage-y look, she eventually took on an experimental side project on her own and formed A Camp in 1997. The band released their first album in 2001, and after a 7-year hiatus, it is back in the game again with their 2nd album - Colonia. This time around, the band (which now comprises of Nina, her husband Nathan Larson, and Nikclas Frisk) has transported to New York and is about to start their North American tour. First stop - Bowery Ballroom, New York City!
I'm super psyched about the concert and cannot wait to see Nina's outfit (hopefully it's those 20's-inspired dresses and head pieces that she's been wearing recently). May 26th, mark your calendars!
