Martin Callingham is a writer and musician from Bristol, UK. He has been melting audiences into a puddle with his intimate delivery and beautifully crafted songs since 2016’s ‘Tonight We All Swim Free’. The album found admirers around the world and gained acclaim from major press and radio like BBC Radio 1, BBC 6 Music, Clash Magazine, Louder Than War & Folk Radio and now Callingham is back with a gorgeous sophomore album ‘Patterns’ due for release this December.
‘Bedding In’ is the second single release from the new album, recorded by Jim Barr (Portishead, Get the Blessing) at J&J Studios, Bristol. ‘Bedding In’ is an intriguing melancholic single with haunting harmonies and solemn organs weaving around Callingham’s distinctive hushed vocal sound. Recalling Iron And Wine or perhaps William Fitzsimmons, ‘Bedding In’ is folk music that goes deeply into occult indie and psychedelic territories, its icy darkness perfect for settling down for a reflective winter.
