HistoryEdit

The band was founded in Pisa in 2011 by Simone Bettin, former guitarist of Motta's Criminal Jokers, and music producer Davide Barbafiera.[1] Later that year, Bettin moved to Berlin, where he met Australian bassist Dhari Vij, who joined the band in 2014.[1][2] The trio started to perform their first songs in the clubs of Berlin and recorded their debut English-language studio album, Viva, in 2015.[1][3] The album was mastered by disc jockey Jan Driver, and released on 3 March 2017 by label Aloch Dischi.[2]

Later in 2017, Dhari Vij was replaced by Tommaso Tanzini and the band signed with Woodworm.[2]

In 2018, Davide Barbafiera co-starred in the film Il ragazzo più felice del mondo by Gipi, presented at the 75th Venice International Film Festival, and the band itself appeared in a cameo role; some of the tracks from Viva were also included in the film's soundtrack.[4]

They released their first Italian-language studio album, Umani, vento e piante (lit.'Humans, wind and plants'), on 9 November 2018.[5]

On 27 November 2020, Campos released their third studio album, Latlong.[6][7]
