Conceived in Birmingham (UK), Midnight Bonfires are a band fusing folk sensitivity with rock and roll energy. With influences ranging from the contemporary folk artists of the 1960s to current indie hit makers, the five lads have quickly become one of the Midlands’ go to bands.
After a year which included going up and down the country with The Twang, releasing successful singles ‘Lights Out’ and ‘Exhale’ (complete with music videos), and supporting Johnny Marr at Moseley Folk Festival, Midnight Bonfires come into 2015 with a bigger and bolder sound, and will release an EP which entertains ideas of lust, love, control, irony and loss early in the new year.
“Somewhere between The Shins and Bon Iver. Great vocal harmonies…it’s tough, not wishy-washy” – Jamie Cullum, BBC Radio 2
