Conceived in Birmingham (UK), Midnight Bonfires are a five-piece band fusing folk sensitivity with rock and roll energy. Their influences range from classic artists such as Bob Dylan and The Beatles to more contemporary artists including The Dead Weather and The Strokes.
Since releasing début single Misbehave in late 2011 and a five track self-titled EP a year later, the band have had the pleasure of sharing stages with Jamie Cullum, The Twang, Ezra Furman, Cosmo Jarvis, Keston Cobblers Club, The Moons and The Beards. With tour dates under their belt and festivals on the horizon, 2014 is set to continue as a busy and exciting year for the Birmingham five-piece.
In late 2013, Midnight Bonfires were working at The Motor Museum studio in Liverpool, with producer Al Groves. The first release from these sessions, ‘Someone Else’ came out in December 2013, supported by an animated video created and directed in the bands home town by local artist, Anna Tonks. This was followed by single ‘Lights Out’, a product of the more recent session at Birmingham’s Carbon Studios. This has also been accompanied by a video directed by and starring the up and coming Michael Tracey. June 2014 will see the bands second release from their Carbon sessions, ‘Exhale’. This will also be accompanied by a second video from Michael Tracey and the team at Incognito Productions.
“Somewhere between The Shins and Bon Iver. Great vocal harmonies…it’s tough, not wishy-washy” – Jamie Cullum, BBC Radio 2
