Campfires In Winter - Alternative Postrock Indie Live Act in Glasgow

Campfires In Winter Short Info

Once described as post-rock pop, Campfires In Winter are an alternative, indie-rock four-piece from Glasgow with a reputation for delivering powerful, emotional and atmospheric live performances. Intricate passages of post-rock guitar elevated by wonderful vocal harmonies, a tightly driven rhythm section and all sewn together by alluring dream-like piano pieces, the band have become known for their ability to create a sound that is both experimental and accessible. Championed by Steve Lamacq on his BBC 6 Music show and fresh from a headline show at the legendary King Tut's Wah Wah Hut in front of a packed audience, Campfires In Winter are preparing to release their new single, "We'll Exist", this May.

Campfires In Winter are a Glasgow-based, alternative, indie-rock four-piece from Croy with a reputation for delivering powerful, emotional and atmospheric live performances. With intricate passages of post-rock guitar elevated by wonderful vocal harmonies, a tightly driven rhythm section and all sewn together by alluring dream-like piano pieces, the band have become known for their ability to create a sound that is both experimental and accessible.

Consisting of Robert Canavan (lead vocals, lead guitar), Wullie Crainey (bass guitar, vocals), Scott McArthur (keyboard, vocals, guitar) and Ewan Denny (drums, percussion), Campfires In Winter have built up a strong following since the release of their debut single, White Lights, back in March 2013 - selling out a headline show at Glasgow’s Nice ‘N’ Sleazy, playing to large crowds at King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut twice within six months and sharing the stage with the likes of The Twilight Sad and Meursault as part of the West End Festival at Oran Mor as well as supporting Kid Canaveral at a sold-out Liquid Room show in Edinburgh. They were recently one of Vic Galloway’s BBC Introducing bands on his BBC Radio Scotland show and have been championed by Steve Lamacq on his BBC 6 Music show amongst others. Towards the end of 2013 the band completed a Scottish tour in support of their much anticipated second EP, Picture of Health, which was released on September 30th. The EP was self-recorded in a cottage in the tiny village of Tomintoul, the highest village in the Scottish Highlands.

2014 has already saw Campfires In Winter headline the legendary King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut, playing to a packed crowd which earned them a five-star review in the Sunday Mail, and the rest of the year is set to be even busier than last with a number of festivals already confirmed. The band are preparing to release their new single, We’ll Exist, in May as well as working on tracks for their debut album.
