Seattle’s Campfire OK blend indie pop, atmospheric rock, and lyrical vocals to create a sound that is distinctly their own, while still firmly rooted in their hometown’s tradition of musical experimentation and collaboration. Banjo, horns, acoustic guitar, dark psychedelia, and bursts of joyful sonic color weave in and out of their songs. The result is a sound that often builds like an impending thunderstorm, but is just as likely to evaporate into a blissful blue day.
Campfire OK began as the creation of songwriter Mychal Cohen (vocals/piano/guitar), who,
in 2010, began recording what would become CFOK’s debut album, Strange Like We Are. Multi-instrumentalist Andrew Eckes (banjo/guitar/trumpet) joined in the recording process,
and the album was released in February 2011. With live performances on the horizon, drummer Brandon Milner was called upon to help bring the songs from studio to stage. In 2012, former Harvey Danger bassist Aaron Huffman came into the mix, adding a layer of urgency to CFOK’s evolving sound along with Zarni De Wet on vocals and piano.
The band is currently releasing their sophomore album one song at a time with videos for each song. They plan on touring heavily to promote the album.
