Bonfire Nights' make swirling moody psych-pop: a clash of surf and synth, shoe-gaze with purple haze, Virginia Plain meets Jesus & Mary Chain.
With mantra like drones, shaking bones and sweet candy overtones, Bonfire Nights like to blur the boundaries.Formed by Steve, Ruth and Nicole in 2010, the band relocated in 2011 to London from their hometown of Brisbane, Australia.
Adopting a minimalist ethos, the band recorded their first self-titled EP on a four-track analogue tape machine. While the approach was modest, the outcome was an eclectic mix, ranging from the menacing ‘Own Worst Enemy’ to the sparse and dreamy fuzz of ‘Leave Yourself Open’.
Bonfire Nights are currently recording their debut album with Ed Deegan (Mudhoney, Soldad Brothers) Those tracks are being produced and mixed by Ian Davenport (Band Of Skulls).
A hectic 2012 saw Bonfire Nights touring the UK & US, including official SXSW, Liverpool Sound City & Focus Wales showcases.
