|Camp Claude Swimming Lessons Limited Vinyl LP
Camp, for the nostalgia of summer colonies, Claude, the evocative universe and reflections of Diane Sagnier. The group is above all the result of the creative fusion of songwriters Mike Giffts and Leo Hellden. Created in Paris, this union transcends borders and genres. Between France and America for her, England and Sweden for them, this clever mix of beats and vocal sensuality has guided their work since the beginning. After releasing in 2014 their first EP "Hurricanes" both praised by the media and the public, the band unveils its debut album "Swimming Lessons". Written, composed and produced by this international trio, the album was mixed by Dave Bascombe (Depeche Mode, Goldfrapp, Lescop, …) and Vincent Audou (Nekfeu, Booba, Brodinski, …).
Diane is both a photographer and a videographer (photos used as covers for several artists such as Melody's Echo Chamber (Domino), pictures for Emily Loizeau, Metronomy and others. Mike et Leo are part of Tristesse Contemporaine (Record Makers).
Through 11 tracks, Camp Claude mixes spontaneous electro and pop-rock guitars, and invites to dive into a fascinating world!
