Captivating Indie-pop collective; Campfire Social craft a dynamically rich sound bursting with bright harmonies carefully layered over hypnotic melodies. Their honest approach echoes a love of 90’s ‘heart-on-sleeve’ emo culture. At times sobering, a hopeful message prevails; we’re better together.
Over the years the band has received some well-deserved recognition from some influential names in UK music scene. Their 2017 single ‘‘Nothing Nowhere Never Now’ was featured on the end of year round ups of Adam Walton (BBC Wales)?, Rock Current (podcast) and ?Drunk on Music? (Blog). The follow up ‘Wellbeing’ EP was 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.
The end of 2017 into summer 2018 saw a significant increase in their national and international profile/presence accepting an invitation to play industry festival ?Zandari Festa (South Korea) and earning spots at acclaimed UK festivals including Kendal Calling? and ?Cerys Matthews’ (BBC 6 music) The Good Life Experience, as well as a welcome return to? Festival Number 6?.
As 2018 drew to a close the band embarked on a momentous trip to Kelowna BC, Canada, where they played two shows at Breakout West in conjunction with Focus Wales representing the welsh music scene and networking ahead of planned album release in autumn of 2019.
“All hail the new Broken Social Scene.”
[Drowned in Sound]
“If the shadows and monsters are getting to you, Campfire Social are a sanctuary of warmest humanity and crackling, luminous melancholy. The kind of melancholy that makes the heart flutter and take flight. Come and sit next to them. There’s plenty of room for everyone”
[Adam Walton – BBC Radio Wales]
