North Wales based 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 combined love for 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.

Last Year the band released ‘Nothing Nowhere Never Now’, listed by Adam Walton (BBC Wales), Rock Current (podcast) and Drunk on Music (Blog) in their end of year roundups.
