Campe Candle is two friends from Philadelphia trek through the crossroads of life with their music and a smile. She is Hetepsa. He is Nu Ra. They are Camp Candle. The duo met at W.B Saul High School of Agricultural Sciences, a school with a farm, located right in Philly. Throughout the years, the "farm school" became an unusual and often therapeutic outlet away from the decadence that plagues the city streets. Most city folk don't have the opportunity to do something so outside of themselves and their surroundings. Camp Candle wishes to share that feeling that comes from living beyond the limits of a situation through their music, because not everyone can turn to landscaping and tending to sheep as an outlet.
Camp Candle draws their influences from many places. You can find hints of synth pop, hip hop, indie rock, soul, and many other styles of music. Nu Ra, who does 1/2 of the production starts the instrumentation. When Hetepsa brings her flavor, she moves the music along with her lyrics and voice. When it's all melted together, it can only be described as Camp Candle.
Camp Candle plans on touring, connecting with thousands of people, and creating a genuine relationship with all who enjoy their music.
The cassette player in Nu Ra’s new car has been bumping a lot of 80’s disco and R&B. He infused his recent indulgence into this track, taking his children’s fervor for Michael Jackson into consideration. Hetepsa met him in the same realm with the lyrics and melody to complement. The guitar spoke for her and Hetepsa spoke for them, voicing to parody Nu Ra’s desire to pay homage to that era in the music video.
Raised in Edmonton, Canada, Wilroy takes R&B as his musical starting point. He’s now based in Liverpool, and cites influences ranging from hip-hop to electronic music and jazz. Recently selected by Gilles Peterson’s Brownswood Music talent discovery initiative Future Bubblers, and played on BBC Radio 1Xtra, Worldwide FM & Bandcamp Weekly, 2018 looks to be a promising year for the producer.
Too Dark To See The Green, Wilroy’s debut EP serves as a cathartic journey through the arc of heartache, as told through the ghosts of 70’s soul men. His music paints grand, maximalist sonics: tracks change shape and mutate as they go, akin to the evolution of a dream. The EP’s 5 tracks wring out every last drop; from the opening nightmarish strings, and the dungeon-low dirge of the title track, to the liberated, gospel highs of Ascension.
A combination of retro aesthetics, enduring lyrics and alt-rock grit.
The best music happens when artists refuse to remain stuck in their own comfort zones and creative boxes. Whenever this happens, they are free to give full range to their vision, and they can really come up with something that’s groundbreaking and personable. This is certainly the case here with Tommy Red and his brand new EP release, “I Wanna Be Exploited.”
