Start ‘Bedding In’ with Martin Callingham’s wintery melancholy

Now he has been on the British music scene since 2016 and has been making waves ever since, and all starting off in the South West of Bristol. Since then, he has managed to gain the attention of numerous media outlets as well as gain airplay on national radio such as 6 Music. His first musical offering was Tonight We All Swim which was released to critical acclaim.

Now in 2021 he has his latest musical offering, his album Patterns, which is out this winter in December. Music lovers and fans however, are in for a special treat as Martin is releasing a track ahead of the release called Bedding In which is out now.

For an indie track Bedding In has both a haunting yet intriguing feel to it and yet has that ability to lure the listener in within the first few moments of hearing it. As you hear the music longer it gradually makes this change where it becomes less haunting and more melodic, yet it does have a strong psychedelic feel to it.

Musically, this stands in the same vein as Kate Bush as it is about the senses, nature, connections with the faith, and problems within the mind. Overall, this is quite a good song to listen to and Martin’s vocals are harmonious, grungy, and somewhat dark as well, but definitely hit all the notes and carry some strong emotional feel to them.  

Bastille new single, ‘No Bad Days,’  

Bastille has announced the release of their new album, ‘Give Me The Future,’ and you can listen to the band’s most recent single, ‘No Bad Days,’ below. The concept for the record which features a spoken word track featuring Riz Ahmed – was devised prior to the epidemic but took on a new life during the lockdown, according to frontman Dan Smith. This new single, ‘No Bad Days,’ follows recent releases ‘Distorted Light Beam,’ ‘Thelma + Louise,’ and the title tune from the new album. Smith co-directed the futuristic video for the new song, which marks his directorial debut.
