New Audio: Introducing the Anthemic Sounds of Scotland’s Campfires in Winter

Campfires in Winter is a Croy, Scotland, UK-based quartet that has quickly exploded onto the UK scene; in fact, the band has received praise across a number of major British media outlets including The Herald, Metro, The Scotsman, The Daily Record and The Sunday Mail, as well as airplay on BBC Radio 6, BBC Radio Scotland — including plays on Steve Lamacq‘s, Vic Galloway’s as well as praise from Cocteau TwinsSimon Raymonde. Adding to a growing national profile, the band has made appearances at Liverpool Sound City, Belladrum Tartan Heart, Brew at the Bog and Wickerman festivals.

Over the past two years, the Scottish quartet has been in the studio with Andrew Odell and Andrew Bush, best known for his work with The Twilight Sad, De Rosa, We Were Promised Jet Packs and more, writing, revising and recording new material, material that will comprise the band’s forthcoming full-length debut, slated for release later this year through Olive Grove Records. “Kopfkino” the still unnamed full-length debut effort’s first single is an anthemic and arena-rock friendly song that has the Scottish quartet pairing shimmering guitar chords, a propulsive, motorik groove, fluttering electronics and crooned baritone vocals within an expansive song structure that includes a gorgeous and lengthy bridge that subtly reminds me of The Who‘s late 70s work.
