Campfires In Winter

They're a  hairy bunch, these guys.
4th of March 2013 will be a significant date for Glasgow based band Campfires In Winter, as it will mark the day of their debut single White Lights. The band have already released 1 EP called Cardboard Ships way back in 2010, and this kick-started their career, as they went on to support the likes of RM Hubbert, Kid Canaveral, So Many Animal Calls and Mitchell Museum. The band also appeared at Wickerman festival and GoNorth in 2012.

However, Campfires in Winter have been enjoying a great start to this year after selling out King Tut's with Kitty the Lion and Sunshine Social, and the plan is to continue to build on this success with the launch night on the 7th of March at Nice 'N' Sleazy in Glasgow, and a video for White Lights which is due out a week before the single.

The song itself is a brilliant example of alt-rock with the Scottish twang we all know and love. This comforting number heads down the post-rock route towards the end of the track with some well executed guitar, but the rousing chorus makes for an easy singalong. You can already hear the chant of "three parts liquid and two parts luck" and "these two white lights up above, they'll keep me alive" from the crowd at live gigs going down a treat. I'll post the video for the song as soon as it is available but check out some of their previous work to get a feel for this band. Definitely ones to watch.
