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

Due to the pandemic, BC Camplight’s upcoming show at The Grand Social is rescheduled from 2nd May 2022 to 15th January 2022. Purchased tickets will remain valid. Tickets are available to purchase at Tickets.ie.

BC Camplight said: “I can hardly express to you how joyous this will be. Get your tickets and come be a part of the celebration.”

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.”
