BC Camplight’s new album, “How To Die In The North,” is streaming now and already gaining momentum ahead of its release.
BC Camplight (songwriter Brian Christinzio) originally hails from New Jersey. After moving to Philadelphia, he signed a deal with One Little Indian and released “Hide, Run Away” and “Blink of a Nihilist” in 2005 and 2007, respectively. In 2011, he moved to Manchester, England. Christinzio has played with The War On Drugs and on Sharon Van Etten’s 2011 “Epic.”
Just by listening to the first few notes of “Just Because I Love You,” you might be struck by its easygoing dream-pop style, which puts you in good hands. He has a penchant for blending that romance with blindingly honest bitterness, and it catches you off-guard.
“I stuffed her with my heart but the bitch bled me dry,” he pleads on “Just Because I Love You.”

“How To Die In The North” will be out Tuesday on Bella Union.
