CAMPFIRES IN WINTER Artist of the Week in Scotland On Sunday
Scotland On Sunday, 12 February 2017, Campfires In Winter

Campfires In Winter are an indie-rock quartet from Croy.

They release their debut album ‘Ischaemia’ on 24 February through excellent Glasgow label Olive Grove Records and it was produced by Andy Bush (The Twilight Sad, We Were Promised Jetpacks), thanks to funding from Creative Scotland.

The band have built a loyal fanbase and have enjoyed airplay from Steve Lamacq (BBC Radio 6) and Vic Galloway (BBC Radio Scotland) as well as coverage in newspapers and online blogs.

Their sound is a powerful mix of post-rock guitars, dreamy piano, multi-part vocal harmonies, and Robert Canavan’s lilting Scottish accent on top – it’s a fantastic debut!

They launch the album with support from American Clay and Book Group at The Old Hairdressers in Glasgow on 24 February. Watch the official video for lead single ’Free Me From The Howl’ press Play below:

Man Of Moon are 19-year-old duo, Michael Reid and Chris Bainbridge, who we first encountered last year via youth music touring project Hit The Road . Since then, their profile has grown significantly, thanks to support slots with bands like The Twilight Sad and The Phantom Band plus airplay and festival appearances.

Their debut split single ‘The Road / This World’ was recorded and produced by Andy Monaghan of Frightened Rabbit and is released on Melodic Records this month.

The pair are musically tight; both melodic and dark. Their psychedelic, alt-rock sound blends hypnotic guitar lines and chunky chords with dreamy, reverb-drenched vocals.

Man Of Moon host launch gigs for the single on Thursday at Edinburgh’s Voodoo Rooms, and on Friday at Glasgow’s Hug and Pint, followed by appearances at Belladrum Festival on 8 August and Electric Fields on 29 August.
