Kamera was formed back in 2000 by drummer Carl DeLorean, singer Joakim Hjelm, and bassist Kit Balance as a dynamic juxtaposition to the vapid Stockholm suburb they all inhabited. Taking cues from greats like Roxy Music and Joy Division, they created a stylish aura of confidence and vulnerability that fused warm melodies and electro-synth harmonies with reliable rock ‘n’ roll riffing and drumming. In 2003, with the help of longtime friend and producer Bjorn Oqvist, Kamera recorded and released their self-titled debut album, featuring fan favorites like Fragile and Suburban Boy.
However, it took them 5 years and the replacement of two of the original band members in order to release their sophomore album Resurrection which signals Kamera’s return to the pop music proving ground, albeit with a darker more mature edge. Combining elements of The Cure, Duran Duran, New Order, and Depeche Mode, it seems that it was well worth the wait.
