Shortly After Takeoff review – a tumultuous pop masterpiece – ★★★★ The Guardian

“Heroic… A record of infinite twists… Bible-black humour and brilliantly fractured songs ensure Shortly After Takeoff is a joy.” Uncut – 9/10

“BC Camplight exceeds emotional baggage allowance in style… he’s often very funny, yet the music’s stylistic pitch underlines how destabilised his world has become, I Only Drink When I’m Drunk buffeted by vocoders and Flaming Lips drums, Back To Work plunging from pastoral pop to early techno chill.” MOJO – 4 stars ★★★★

“Misery loves company, and on BC Camplight’s spectacular fifth album, it’s found a partner” – ★★★★ The Line of The Best Fit

BC Camplight announces his highly anticipated return to Whelan’s, Dublin on 29th November 2023. Tickets will be available from from this Friday at 10am.

BC Camplight’s latest album ‘Shortly After Takeoff’ was released in April 2020, the album received stellar reviews from MOJO, Uncut and The Guardian and many more.

Fired by his ongoing battle with mental illness, Shortly After Takeoff is the final, and finest, chapter of what Christinzio calls his “Manchester Trilogy”, following 2015’s “How To Die In The North” and 2018’s “Deportation Blues”.

All three albums were created after the native Philadelphian had moved to Manchester. Like Deportation Blues, Shortly After Takeoff spans singer-songwriter classicism, gnarly synth-pop and ‘50s rock’n’roll, with Christinzio’s similarly distinctive, flexible vocal carrying a fearless approach to lyrical introspection, but the new album is a major leap forward in songwriting sophistication and lyrical communication.

“It’s important to stress that this isn’t a redemption story,” he says. “I’m a guy who maybe lives a little hard and I’m in the thick of some heavy stuff. But as a result, I think I’ve made my best record.”
