Eyre Llew are an ambient-rock trio from Nottingham, UK often compared to bands such as Sigur Ros, Bon Iver, Explosions in the Sky and A Winged Victory For The Sullen. Having formed in August 2014, they have released nine singles and, since then, a self-recorded, produced and released a 12 track debut album entitled ‘Atelo’. They launched ‘Atelo’ on Thursday 19th October 2017 with a hometown show at the 500 capacity Glee Club, Nottingham – which sold out in advance. Already achieving critical acclaim, the bands debut album has reached #24 in Drowned in Sound’s Top 100 albums of 2017 which was such a reward for their DIY approach on this record. Other reviews from internationally respected music outlets have also been shared with Gigwise saying they’re “Arguably one of the most exciting bands in the UK right now.” Plans for 2018 looks to be the year that takes the trio to the next level with more touring and release plans over the UK, Europe and Asia!
Hailing from Llangollen / North Wales Indie-pop 5 piece, Campfire Social, are a refuge from the wild woods all around. Their incandescent, melodic songs take the intimate heartbreak of Elliott Smith and embellish with golden harmonies borrowed from The Beach Boys mixed with subtle hints of their personal love for post-rock and the mid 90’s emo scene. At times getting you up off your chairs in a passionate rage, at others just to dance but always filled with hope.
In 2015 Campfire Social existed merely as a bedroom project. It wasn’t until late in 2016 that a final lineup was decided and the band released the single ‘Nothing Nowhere Never Now’, listed by Adam Walton (BBC Wales), Rock Current (podcast) and Drunk on Music (Blog) in their best of 2016 roundups.
That song is now one of two tracks from the newly released Wellbeing EP selected for the A-list by BBC Radio Wales resulting in continued airplay, a live session with Janice Long and further BBC 6 music plays. This year the band have performed at the highly acclaimed Festival Number 6 and industry festival Zandari Festa in South Korea, performing 4 shows including a headline performance representing the Welsh Music scene and to promote their planned debut album release in 2018.
