Introducing...Bonfire Nights.

Bonfire Nights make swirling moody psych-pop: a clash of surf and synth, shoegaze with purple haze, think Virginia Plain meets Jesus & Mary Chain.

With mantra like drones, shaking bones and sweet candy overtones, Bonfire Nights like to blur the boundaries. 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.
