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:

Edwin Organ, Scotland on Sunday, 8 January 2017

EDWIN ORGAN Artist of the Week in Scotland On Sunday
Scotland On Sunday, 8 January 2017, Edwin Organ

The death of a rosemary plant is an unlikely inspiration for a song about loss, but then Edwin Organ is no ordinary artist.

Originally hailing from Dunfirmline, where he spent several years recording house tracks, his move to Glasgow has led to decidedly left-field take on electronica.
This is particularly evident on the ode to the culinary herb, titled Serenade, which sees a pacey rhythm and engaging double bassline, underpin a vocal style which will remind older listeners of OMD and the younger musical connoisseurs, of C Duncan.

Already attracting interest from big record labels and booking agents, not to mention Swedish House Mafia’s Axewell, he will be in session on Radio Scotland’s Vic Galloway show on 13 February and is expected to play live as a three piece act, around the same time.

Based on what we’ve heard so far, Edwin Organ could well be 2017’s most original breakthrough act.
