Nina Persson out of The Cardigans and aka A Camp is finally set to release her debut solo single and album (or at least in terms of within the guise of her own name, anyway) in the coming months. Both are called ‘Animal Heart’, and today the single got its premiere on Swedish radio station P3.
The unmistakable vocal is back, and she’s taking it down the indiepop route with a quick detour along the neon road signs towards electropop. With ‘Animal Heart’ it’s not too difficult to imagine that this is the debut solo outing of Nina Persson from The Cardigans. Not just because of that aforementioned familiar vocal, but also because she’s not strayed too far away from the music that she loved making with that band. A warm and twinkling synth production coupled with a comfortingly repetitive melody that doesn’t take very long to wedge itself within the listener’s head.
This is pretty much precisely what we expected from Nina Persson’s debut – both in terms of sound and in the top notch level of quality. And it feels pretty good to be hearing her voice on the radio again.
