Recent praise for Brian Campeau:
"That's ridiculously good! The guitars are stupendous…Truly majestic!" - Mark Radcliffe (BBC 6Music)
“I absolutely love it” – Stuart Maconie (BBC 6Music)
“Dreamy” - Lauren Laverne BBC 6Music
“A remarkable glitch-pop document” - Clash
“Takes his cues from Super Furry Animals on this delightful psych-pop swoon” - Mystic Sons
“Next October” is the second single to be lifted from Brian Campeau's forthcoming new album, due out in late summer via Small Pond recordings in collaboration with their Australian soulmates Art As Catharsis.
Rich with vocal harmonies and buoyant, intricate guitar lines, this upbeat and idiosyncratic folk-laced song will be released online on 20th June, ahead of the radio impact date of 3rd August. It is the perfect follow-up to “Whatever Happened To Xanadu”, which introduced the Canadian-Australian indie troubadour's new record in May, gaining heavy daytime BBC 6Music support from Radcliffe & Maconie and Lauren Laverne (who also championed the song on 6Music Recommends), to add to blog love from the likes of CLASH, Mystic Sons and Original Rock.
Written at speed, as part of a recent 20 songs in 20 days challenge, the lavish intricacy and depth of “Next October” is testament to Campeau's finely honed musical instincts and a newfound love of intense, spur-of-the-moment creative processes. Bringing an incredible groove to Campeau's intensely odd, programmed drum pattern, Chris Allison (Plini) lends his skills behind the kit, while Josh Ahearn joins Campeau on guitar.
