Campfires In Winter’s long-awaited debut album Ischaemia via Olive Grove Records. Epic in scope and equally as intense, the bands unique post-rock pop sound more than lives up to the promise of their early critically acclaimed EPs.
Campfires In Winter are their own band. Never ones to compromise their sound, they flit effortlessly between crushing noise and heartbreaking intimacy, but never at the expense of melody.
As lead vocalist, singer Robert Canavan’s unmistakable Scottish lilt defines the sound of Ischaemia. His depths in vocals are complimented by subtly layered harmonies that tensely build and give way to an air of uneasy reality. Though it’s in the lyrics where the album really takes hold. In many ways, Canavan’s approach to songwriting is to approach real life as it is. There is no pretence, no airs and graces. Instead, there is genuine frankness behind the pensive allegory that speaks to the human condition.
Recorded by Andrew Odell at Unit 55 in Cumbernauld with mixing and additional production by Andrew Bush (The Twilight Sad, De Rosa, We Were Promised Jetpacks), Ischaemia captures the confidence of a band at the height of their creative powers.
Campfires In Winter are Robert Canavan (lead singer/lead guitar), Wullie Crainey (bass guitar), Scott McArthur (keys/guitar) and Ewan Denny (drums).
Ischaemia is released on 12″ Heavyweight Vinyl, CD and Digital Download through Olive Grove Records on 24th February 2017.
